Women's health is commonly confined to sexual and reproductive health. This ignores significant changes in leading causes of death and disability for women in nearly all countries, which is now non-communicable diseases. As a result, we need a redefined focus on women's health.

Join HBA RTP for a powerful evening of sharing knowledge with Professor Robyn Norton, President and co-founder, The George Institute of Global Health, and discussing what redefining women's health means to you.

Do you know:

      • Seatbelt research in the 1960's only considered males
      • Artificial intelligence research indicates female robots are treated more poorly than male robots
      • Sex and gender specific data collection and analysis is not required in drug development

The Gates Foundation, The United Nations Foundation and leaders across the industry propose that in order to close the gender gap, we must first close the data gap.
