HPSR mentoring: Supporting early career women in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

According to UNESCO data, less than 30% of the world’s researchers are women, and they publish less than their male counterparts.  The Women Mentorship program, launched by Health Systems Global in collaboration with the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research and Health Policy and Planning, supported several women authors from LMICs in publishing in an academic journal for the first time. This supplement is the output from this process.

The papers that form this supplement span a wide range of equity-oriented topics affecting health system performance and outcomes. Topics include health workforce support, intimate partner violence, health sector corruption, implementation factors in service delivery, universal health coverage, and more. Countries represented include Kenya, Vietnam, Uganda, Ghana, Uganda, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Brazil.
