Graduate Institute Geneva International Geneva’s pivotal role in global health has long been recognised. With the launch of the Geneva Gender Champions in July 2015, the multilateral city of diplomacy is also positioning itself as a hub for gender equality. More than 100 leaders from international and non-governmental organisations as well as permanent missions have committed to end all-male panels and to support concrete, measurable actions to advance gender parity. How are they meeting these pledges? How can the Geneva Gender Champions mobilise gender-focused commitments in global health? Is their engagement in line with the realities of gender disparity in global health leadership?
