German government launches ‘Women in Global Health – Germany’ network
The German Ministry for Development (BMZ) and the Ministry of Health (BMG) have co-launched the network ‘Women in Global Health – Germany’. With this initiative, the German government seeks to strengthen women in leadership positions in global health, a sector which is characterized by a high share of female staff, but an even higher share of men in key leadership positions. The representatives of BMZ, Ingrid-Gabriela Hoven, and BMG, Lutz Stroppe, highlighted that diversity and gender balance are critical to achieve the SDGs and strengthen global collaboration on health.
During the event, the hosts presented a German list of 100 women who work in global health.
