More coming soon: Researching X

Today more than ever, our world is driven by data – and missing data often leads to problems. Sex- and gender-related data is no exception. To provide better, more equitable health care, we need robust data to paint a better picture. And to have tailored healthcare that responds to the needs, experiences, characteristics and circumstances of all women, we need to understand what a women-centered approach to healthcare really means.

We set out to understand how to improve the overwhelming disparities with different initiatives, looking at different conditions and different aspects of barriers that impact the healthcare women receive.

Through a variety of methods and together with key partners. We will conduct research and host vital discussions to spark conversation that shed light on these long overlooked issues.

With the outcomes of the various research efforts, we aim to support evidence-based recommendations and insights for ourselves and all other actors in health systems, and elevate dialogue around the urgent need for change among key stakeholders and decision makers.
