Investing in Women for Global Health Progress: Celebrating International Women's Day


As we celebrate International Women's Day, the Swedish Organisation for Global Health stands at the forefront of advocating for gender equality and women's empowerment in the realm of global health. This year's theme, "Invest in Women, Accelerate the Progress," resonates deeply with our mission to create a healthier and more equitable world by recognizing the pivotal role women play in driving positive change.

Investing in Women's Health:

Women are not only essential beneficiaries of healthcare but also key contributors to the health and well-being of families, communities, and societies at large. By investing in women's health, we not only improve their quality of life but also unlock their potential to catalyze progress in areas such as maternal and child health, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental health, and more.

Empowering Women in Leadership:

Empowering women in leadership positions within the global health sector is crucial for driving innovation, fostering diversity of perspectives, and ensuring that policies and programs are inclusive and effective. By supporting women to take on leadership roles, we can accelerate progress towards achieving health equity and sustainable development goals.

Championing Gender Equality:

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but also a prerequisite for achieving sustainable development. By championing gender equality in all aspects of global health, from research and policy-making to service delivery and advocacy, we can create a more just and equitable world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

Taking Action:

On this International Women's Day, let us commit to taking concrete actions to invest in women, accelerate progress, and advance gender equality in global health. Whether it's supporting women-led initiatives, advocating for policies that promote gender equity, or amplifying the voices of women in the field, each of us has a role to play in creating a healthier and more equitable world for all.


As we reflect on the theme "Invest in Women, Accelerate the Progress" this International Women's Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to empowering women, championing gender equality, and working together towards a future where every woman has the opportunity to thrive. Together, we can harness the power of women to drive positive change and accelerate progress in global health. Let us stand united in our efforts to create a healthier, more equitable world for all. Happy International Women's Day!

So my teeth were more important than i thought? I got a new insight about oral health after listening to volunteers from SOGH who gave us a seminar on dental health. It's surprising that my teeth is of such great concern to another person.

I got the opportunity to be a delegate at the Berlin World Health Summit.As a researcher, I needed a source of materials and motivation to drive my research to a higher level. When i heard of Decolonizing Minds, and worked with the SOGH on that, I knew that my furture research will not just be objective, but useful and people-centred
