WHAT IS IT?
The Global Health calendar, or GH calendar, is a tool that will centralize information about events occurring worldwide related to Global Health, so you can easily access them and you don’t miss anything! The events will be published by us, but you can contribute in filling the calendar with GH events of your interest. We want this tool to be easily accessible, practical, updated and collaborative.
It is important to note that we do not organize the events found in this calendar. The ones organized by the Global Health Next Generation Network are found in Events.
This means that we cannot ensure that this events will happen, and we do not take responsibility if they are cancelled. We also want to make clear that we are not receiving any gains from promoting these events.
HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE?
You can contribute to the GH calendar by sending us events you find interesting in the form found below, as long as they are within the scope of Global Health. We’ll review them and publish them on the calendar.
At the same time, you can also add comments giving your opinion of past events you have attended, either if you knew about them thanks to our tool or not. You will find the comments form soon in this page.

3:00 pm: Gender Equity HUB Policy Action Paper Launch
Title: GEH Policy Action Paper Launch: Closing the Leadership Gap
Organizers: Global Health Workforce Network's Gender Equity Hub, Women in Global Health, World Health Organization
Description: Women are almost 70% of the global health and social workforce, but it is estimated they hold only 25% of senior roles. During the COVID19 pandemic, women have provided much health and care but have not had an equal say in decision-making. This pervasive leadership gap between women and men in health can only be closed by addressing systemic barriers to women’s advancement and having gender-transformative policies in place.
To address this gap, Global Health Workforce Network's Gender Equity Hub is launching its first-ever policy action paper on closing the leadership gap in a series of four! will be launched by the WHO’s Global Health Workforce Network’s Gender Equity Hub. In this Paper, policy actions needed to achieve gender transformative policies for women’s leadership in health and care will be proposed. This Action Paper builds on a policy brief, Gender Equity and Leadership in the Global Health and Social Workforce, issued by the Hub for consultation in 2020. The Action Paper will contribute insights into women’s leadership in health and care and feasible policy interventions to ensure more gender-equitable and representative leadership. The Paper will provide practical examples and guidance for policymakers to incorporate gender equity into health and social workforce policies. Then this will be followed by the expert panel discussion and taking questions from the audience.
