Event Description

 There is a growing interest in applying gender frameworks and analysis in health systems research. The #metoo movement and other popular feminist actions have driven greater attention to gender equity. New conflicts and health crises have arisen in various settings prompting humanitarian emergency responses.

This upcoming webinar does not seek to make the argument that we should focus on gender in post-conflict health systems. We feel that argument has been settled. Rather we will describe how the process of focusing on gender has unfolded in different settings and share a range of tools that interested researchers, policy makers and practitioners could use and adapt to stimulate progress towards gender equity.

We also want to hear from you. What challenges are you facing in taking forward this agenda? How can our global community of health systems researchers help in constructing the kind of evidence base that would guide good decision makers and facilitate best practice?
