About the Centre
The UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health, based in the Institute for Global Health, comprises a multidisciplinary team that conducts research and works alongside policy-makers and policy-influencers to address the complex relationships between gender norms and health status. Our disciplinary expertise ranges from anthropology to applied policy analysis, and we work in a multitude of settings around the world – from the smallest island states, to the informal settlements of the world’s most populous nations, and many locations in-between.
We view gender as both a determinant of health behaviours and a key influence on how the health sector responds to everyone’s rights to health and wellbeing. Working alongside partners in civil society and policy spheres, with colleagues across UCL and from other academic institutions, we aim to ensure that gender is recognised as a key determinant of health outcomes, and that policies and programmes to address gender norms influencing health are informed by rigorous evidence of effectiveness, acceptability and feasibility.

Call for Evidence: Review of participatory tools addressing GBV against women and girls.

Deadline: 22 May 2017
