WOMEN IN GLOBAL HEALTH SWITZERLAND

Ready to play part in a global movement challenging power & privilege for gender equity in health?

Join the inaugural event of the Swiss Chapter on 27 June at 4:30 PM

Switzerland brings together a community of engaged people across the country to promote gender equity in health and pave the way for gender transformative leadership at national and international levels.

WGH Switzerland supports the global Women in Global Health movement, powered by over 60,000 supporters in 90 countries – many of which LMICs, and 39 official chapters. Together, we work to challenge power and privilege for gender equity in health. Co-founded in 2015 by Dr Roopa Dhatt, Women in Global Health is supportedby volunteers from around the world.

Hosted by the Swiss-based HumanImpact5 – Hi5 Association, the WGH Switzerland Chapter is a ‘platform of platforms’ for the global health initiatives undertaken by women in Switzerland, as well as the international Geneva-based global health landscape.

WGH Switzerland welcomes people of all genders, ages, career levels, cantons, and health-related sectors.  If you live in Switzerland, are a Swiss national, or work in Swiss-based organization – public or private –  and identify as working in global health, join us to share the vision of Women in Global Health!

The WGH Switzerland Chapter is currently led by a core group and functions as a community.
