Communities and countries around the globe face multiple and overlapping crises, fueled by mounting social, political, and economic pressures. Global leadership and governance structures are failing to address these pressures, with the consequences of this failure most deeply felt in fragile and conflict affected settings. In this challenging environment, how can greater health equity and gender equality contribute to building more peaceful societies?
Please join the Wilson Center’s Maternal Health Initiative and Canada Institute, in partnership with The Lancet, for the launch of the Lancet Commission on peaceful societies through health equity and gender equality's report. Hear from report authors, partners, and subject matter experts on how advances towards health equity and gender equality can make our societies more peaceful.
