Over the past few years, calls to decolonise global health have developed momentum amongst a wide group of actors concerned with rebalancing or reversing the impacts of colonial histories, as well as addressing contemporary forms of neo-colonialism and power asymmetries in global health. Moving towards a more de-colonial and equitable system of governance, funding, research and practice is not only a moral issue, but also one that will improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the global health system. Presently the ‘decolonising global health’ agenda consists of a loose network of individuals, organisations and projects involving a range of actors. UNU-IIGH is well-positioned to help coordinate this network and convene a sub-set of initiatives aimed at generating positive change and impact.
This project aims to improve policy outputs in the areas of maternal, newborn, sexual and reproductive health across five African countries.
