Lancet-HSPH Commission

Through a specially convened advisory group—the Special Commission on Women and Health that we plan to establish in collaboration with The Lancet—we will review existing evidence and develop a strategic framework for the women and health agenda. Co-chaired by Dr. Ana Langer, the deliberations of the Women and Health Commission will culminate in a special report on women and health to be co-authored by the Commissioners and published by The LancetThe Lancets global influence and its extensive reach in countries around the world will ensure wide dissemination of the report’s important findings and calls to action. The report will provide a powerful tool for academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, and other entities to create momentum around the women and health agenda and position it as a health and development priority.
