The Power of Evidence: The Disconnect Between “Gender Transformative” Language and Action in Global Health

  • Despite decades of commitments, talk remains the substitute for action in tackling gender inequalities in global health. For example, the development of treatments, vaccines, diagnostics, and other forms of medical innovation to this very day continue to neglect the health of women and girls. In this episode, we explore the misappropriation and misuse of gender-transformative language and the negative impact this has had on addressing gender inequalities in global health. We are joined by our host, Johanna Riha, and guest speaker Anju Malhotra, who talks to us about a provocative think piece she recently wrote on the topic. We also hear reactions to Anju’s think piece from Jennifer McCleary-Sills and Geeta Rao Gupta.
