The 2020 report provides an unprecedented birds-eye view of the global health system today. It reveals that the leadership of the 200 most prominent organisations active in global health continues to reflect power and privilege asymmetries along historical, geographic and gender lines. The report further uncovers a distinct disconnect between the organisational priorities and the gendered burdens of disease around the world.
The report warns that these inequalities -- an inequality of opportunity in career pathways inside organisations and an inequality in who benefits from the global health system -- are impeding progress towards health goals.
GH5050 identified 13 very high-scoring organisations and a further 27 high-scoring organisations in its 2020 Report. High scorers per sector have also been recognised. Scoring is based on performance across the four dimensions of the 2020 analysis. It does not reflect analysis of organisations’ SDG-related focus, or whether their programmatic approaches focus on a specific sex. In the future, GH5050 will continue to explore applying more specificity in its scoring to capture the gender-responsiveness of programmatic policies and strategies.
