Gender Parity Series: Redefining Women's Health

HBA RTP Redefining Women's Health

Women's Health is commonly confined to sexual and reproductive health. This ignores significant changes in leading causes of death and disability for women in nearly all countries, which is now noncommunicable diseases. As a result, we need a redefined focus on women's health. 

Join Healthcare Businesswomen's Association RTP for a powerful evening of sharing knowledge with Professor Robyn Norton, President and co-founder, The George Institute of Global Health, and discussing what redefining women's health means to you. 

Did you know?: 

      • Seatbelt research in the 1960's only considered males
      • Sex and gender-specific data collection and analysis is not required in drug development

Robyn Norton and others like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nation's Sustainable Health Goals, propose solutions centered around the idea that we will not close the gender gap without closing the data gap.
