    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. The series is organised by a consortium between UNU IIGH, The University of Cape Town and BBC Media Action.

    This webinar will discuss the ways COVID-19 affected women’s health and their risk of gender-based violence. It will also highlight specific innovations and strategies that emerged during the pandemic.
