The conference will focus on:

  • Enhancing knowledge of recent progress in research, practice, and programs to eliminate global gender inequality.

  • Fostering collaborative networks to share successes and challenges in implementation and sustainability of evidence-based gender programs.

  • Strategizing solutions to promote gender science that address global disparities and innovative technology when working with key populations.
