‘Men – the elephant in the (gender & global health) room’

July 30, 2021

The recently established Lancet Commission on Gender and Global Health is delighted to announce a new fortnightly seminar series open to all. The Series accompanies the development of the Commission, inviting Commissioners and Co-Chairs to discuss a key topic, question, or challenge that the Commission hopes to tackle. The series aims to involve a range of stakeholders and voices in its work and promote discussion and debate on gender and health.

In the eleventh event of the series, Commissioner Morna Cornell, Senior Researcher & Project Manager, IeDEA-Southern Africa, highlighted the historical neglect of men in the response to HIV, and in public health more broadly.
