Women and Girls

The NCD Lab Women and Girls thematic area serves to support ambitious initiatives that promote gender equity and address the urgent need for progress among women and girls. By looking at women’s and girl’s well-being from birth to old age as interconnected periods, we can plan preventative interventions early in life that keep girls and women healthier across their lifespans.

The submissions provided by the NCD Lab will take on a gender-transformative approach; as they recognize and address both the role of gender in the determinants and impacts of NCDs, and the links between NCDs, mental health conditions and gender inequalities and how they reinforce each other.
