Women in Global Health (WGH) is a global movement that brings together all genders and backgrounds to achieve gender equality in global health leadership. 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.

RinGs brings together three health systems focused Research Programme Consortia (RPC): Future Health SystemsReBUILD and RESYST in a partnership to galvanise gender and ethics analysis in health systems research.​
