Women make up 75% of the healthcare workforce. Their contribution to health systems is essential, yet their work is often undervalued and their leadership unrecognized. We are working to change that story.
CAGH has created a searchable list of Canadian Women in Global Health to celebrate and promote the achievements and expertise of these amazing leaders.
We also represent the Canadian chapter of the international movement for Women in Global Health, where we advocate for gender equality in global health.
