The State of Women and Leadership in Global Health

Women in Global Health undertook this research on the state of women’s leadership and global health to assess the pace of change at the global level, the impact of the pandemic and inform recommendations with country experiences from India, Kenya, and Nigeria.

The headline conclusion is that women are still significantly underrepresented in health leadership and that impacts negatively on women affected and on health systems. It is therefore everybody’s business. Women working in health have the right to equal leadership opportunities, and health systems need their expertise.

Les Principes De JOGJAKARTA

Tous les êtres humains naissent libres et égaux en dignité et en droits. Tous les droits humains sont universels, interdépendants, indivisibles et intimement liés. L’orientation sexuelle et l’identité de genre font partie intégrante de la dignité et de l’humanité de toute personne et ne doivent pas être à l’origine de discriminations ou d’abus.

Les Principes de Jogjakarta (Principes sur l’application de la législation internationale des droits humains en matière d’orientation sexuelle et d’identité de genre) affirment les normes juridiques internationales obligatoires auxquelles les États doivent se conformer. Ils promettent un futur différent, où tous les êtres humains, nés libres et égaux en dignité et en droits, pourront jouir de ces précieux droits acquis lors de leur naissance même.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. All human rights are universal, interdependent, indivisible and interrelated. Sexual orientation and gender identity are integral to the dignity and humanity of every person and should not be a basis for discrimination or abuse.

The Yogyakarta Principles (Principles on the Application of International Human Rights Law in relation to Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) affirm binding international legal standards to which states must adhere. They promise a different future, one in which all human beings, born free and equal in dignity and rights, will be able to enjoy these precious rights acquired at birth itself.

Counseling for Choice: The Choice Book for Providers

Counseling for Choice (C4C) is an evidence-based approach to contraceptive counseling aimed at supporting clients to make the best choice about which method is right for them. C4C was developed to address many of the causes of unmet need for contraception and discontinuation among users who still want to prevent pregnancy. C4C aims to change providers and clients’ participation in voluntary family planning counseling discussions and ensure that clients can use their voice, choice, and agency to make contraceptive choices that meet their needs. The approach requires a thorough training in C4C techniques and the use of the Choice Book for Providers, a job aid and visual tool providers use with clients during counseling sessions. The C4C Choice Books have been translated into English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
