Launched in August 2020, the Lancet Commission on Gender and Global Health, was established with the explicit and uncompromising aim to move beyond evidence to catalyse action on gender and global health. The Commission is co-chaired by Sarah Hawkes (Director, UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health) Pascale Allotey (Director of the UNU International Institute for Global Health) and Elhadj As Sy (Chair of the Kofi Annan Foundation and former Secretary General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies).
