Women in Health lectures

Inspired by Athena SWAN, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine has established a prestigious lecture series to highlight the work of women in research. The lectures are held annually and are given by women who have made a significant contribution to global health research and policy during their careers.

The focus of the lectures is on the speaker's career and how her gender has influenced the decisions she has taken, identifying lessons that are broadly applicable to other people's career choices and pathways in research and policy.
