In this talk, Sarah Hawkes will outline the objectives, approach, activities, findings and impact of a new initiative (Global Health 5050) that advocates for gender equality in global health organisations. Evidence on how gender influences both health outcomes and our working lives will be investigated in depth in this talk, and data from reviewing 200 organisations that work in global health will be presented. The talk will also include a detailed description of a model for enhancing the role that empirical evidence can play in policy and practice to improve both equity and equality in relation to gender and global health.
