    As part of the UNU Gender and Health Hub Annual Forum, we are convening the Digital Health webinar series finale for 2021. The  Gender and Digital Health Webinar Series  is a platform to foster new partnerships and co-create knowledge on the gendered dimensions of digital technologies for health, with a focus on the translation of evidence to policy and practice-based learning in low- and middle-income countries. Co-organised by a consortium between UNU IIGH, The University of Cape Town, and BBC Media Action, the series featured 40 speakers on 10 topics and was attended by about 2500 participants in 2021. This session celebrates the series, launches the  Gender and  Digital  Health  Policy  Brief  Series, and looks ahead at new partnerships and research directions in 2022.
