Established in 2015, Women in Global Health was founded with the values of being a movement. We believe that everyone has the right to attain equal levels of participation in leadership and decision-making regardless of gender. WGH creates a platform for discussions and collaborative space for leadership, facilitates specific education and training, garners support and commitment from the global community, and demands change for Gender Transformative Leadership.

WGH works with other global health organizations to encourage stakeholders from governments, civil society, foundations, academia and professional associations and the private sector to achieve gender equality in global health leadership in their space of influence.  We are virtually based.  Our team is composed of a Board of Directors and team members, including assistants and fellows, from around the globe.  We are currently all volunteers.  We are registered with 501(c)(3) status in the USA since 2017.
