    From 7–9 December 2021, the UNU International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) will organise the Gender and Health Hub Annual Forum. The event will celebrate the growing multistakeholder global Hub community and spotlight key achievements, initiatives, and actors while also establishing next steps and new partnerships for 2022.

    The UNU Gender and Health Hub (GHH) was established with the aim to bridge the gap between people, evidence, policy, and action and contribute to more evidence-based and better-resourced integration of gender in health policies and programmes.

    Launched at the UN Commission on the Status of Women (UN CSW) in March 2021, GHH has focused on convening technical expertise with political leadership and consolidating evidence-based solutions to encourage concrete commitments to turn the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity for gender equality in health.

    Day 1 (7 December 2021): What Works in Gender and Health: Lessons Learnt

    • Report Launch: What Works in Gender and Health: Lessons Learned from Synthesis of Gender Integration Across Five UN Agencies

    Day 2 (8 December 2021): Galvanising a Multistakeholder Ecosystem: People, Policies, and Partnerships for a Feminist Transformation of the Health Sector

    Day 3 (9 December 2021): What Next: Future Directions for Research and Policy engagement

    • Setting the Agenda for Action: Launch of the Gender & COVID-19 Research Agenda-setting Results
