Devex Examines Why Women Hold Few Global Health Leadership Positions

Devex: Why do women hold less than 25 percent of global health leadership roles?
“…[W]hat then is stopping women interested in global health before they reach leadership level? A combination of factors, according to those who have managed to climb their own career ladder: lack of female role models as mentors; decreased access to research training and leadership development; difficulties balancing career and personal life; and health and safety risks in the field…” (Rogers, 2/3).
