Join ARISE and CHORUS consortia for a webinar to discuss the importance of employing an intersectional and gendered lens when looking at health and wellbeing in informal settlements.
Following on from the rich discussion at the ‘Actors and alliances to transform health and wellbeing in cities’ satellite session at the Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Bogota, the ARISE and CHORUS consortia are delighted to invite you to attend our joint webinar to discuss the importance of employing an intersectional and gendered lens when looking at health and wellbeing in informal settlements.
Based on our research in informal settlements across Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, we will bring together a panel of speakers with a breadth of knowledge on gender and intersectionality, the role of structural violence, health seeking behaviours, and ask them to discuss what we need from funders in terms of policies, actions and resources.
Chaired by Helen Elsey, Associate Professor of Global Public Health at the University of York, who works on both ARISE and CHORUS, speakers will include:
- Abriti Arjyal (HERD International, Nepal)
- Bintu Mansaray (COMAHS, Sierra Leone)
- Chinyere Mbachu (University of Nigeria)
- Ivy Chumo (APHRC, Kenya)
- Lauren Wallace (Dodowa Health Research Centre, Ghana)
- Partho Mukherjee (The George Institute India)
- Adrita Rahman (BRAC University JPG School of Public Health, Bangladesh)
- Sushama Kanan (ARK Foundation, Bangladesh)
