The Canadian Society for International Health, in close collaboration with The Lancet and the Government of Canada, is excited to present the Canadian Women in Global Health List 2018. CWIGH is inspired by a broader global movement to recognize the achievements and expertise of women in global health. Given Canada’s international reputation for advancing health and gender equality, it is important that the diversity of its women leaders be recognized and amplified.
The CWIGH List highlights Canadian women leaders, working at home or abroad as practitioners, researchers, educators, policy-makers, and/or community advocates, in a range of disciplines and sectors -- such as academia/research, civil society/non-governmental organizations, and government -- to advance global health.
This list will help journal editors when selecting peer reviewers and commissioning articles; conference organizers in their identification of speakers; media when seeking expert commentators or interviewees; funders and policymakers when seeking technical experts; and anyone interested in broadening, deepening or diversifying their networks and communities of practice.
