There is an urgent need in global health to identify and implement evidence-based approaches that effectively transform gendered power dynamics and promote gender equality in health policies, programmes and workplaces.
A meeting was co-convened by UNU-IIGH and WHO from 29-30 April 2019 to take stock, review and discuss gender mainstreaming approaches in health. This marked the beginning of a joint programme of work that will inform future interventions and initiatives with evidence on what works in gender and health.
