Women's Leadership Global Health Challenge

The Women Leaders in Global Health Challenge Contest (WLGH Challenge) is a global open challenge organised by WHO-TDR, the University of London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Seth SESH and the Women Leaders in Global Health Conference 2018. The aim of the competition is to collect innovative solutions and promote more women to apply for the TDR mid-career fellowship. The aim of the fellowship is to provide a year of relevant training for people from low- and middle-income countries working in clinical care, healthcare and pharmaceutical research and development, but for a number of reasons, the number of women applying for the fellowship has not been effectively increased over the years.

Now we need your ideas - from all regions, of all genders, and of all ages - to change the current scarcity of female applicants for TDR scholarships and create more opportunities for more women to apply!

The winner of the competition (at least 3) will attend the Women Leaders Global Health Conference in London in November 2018.
