It was indeed an honour to welcome Dr Roopa Dhatt, Executive Director, Co-founder, Women in Global Health (WGH), USA, to Chitkara University, Punjab. Dr Roopa was here to shared her vision – Women in Global Health – with Hon’ble Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Vice-Chancellor, Chitkara University, and further plan for the launch of ‘Women in Global Health, India Chapter’.

The event was hosted by Chitkara School of Health Sciences, and around 120 participants registered from PGI, AIIMS, Fortis and other local Healthcare organisations, to be a part of the event.

During her address to the attendees, Dr Roopa focused on the evidence that despite 75% of entry-level health workforce being women, they are missing from several aspects of the workforce. This has necessitated men and women to dialogue to change the landscape and capitalise on the human potential, she urged. WGH works with global health organisations, governments, civil society, foundations, academia, professional associations, and the private sector to strengthen global health by achieving gender equality at all levels from community to global.

Women in Global Health is an organisation, built on a global movement that brings together all genders and backgrounds to achieve gender equality in global health leadership. The organization believes that everyone has the right to attain equal levels of participation in leadership and decision-making regardless of gender. WGH creates a platform for discussions and collaborative space for leadership, facilitates specific education and training, garners support and commitment from the global community, and demands change for Gender Transformative Leadership.

Co-founder Dr. Roopa Dhatt is WGH’s Executive Director. WGH has members in over 70 countries and with the first two Chapters in Germany and Washington, D.C., established in 2018.
