About the Gender Equity Unit

The Data for Health (D4H) Initiative’s Gender Equity Unit is funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies and housed in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Our work aims to:

  1. Serve as a knowledge center and resource hub for all partners and countries in the D4H Initiative and beyond to integrate gender equity in their work
  2. Provide capacity-strengthening activities focused on gender equity for partner liaisons and key country players
  3. Conduct research studies to demonstrate the importance of, barriers to, and strategies for advancing gender equity in global public health through data systems.
