2022 Global Health 50/50 report: A review of power, policy and people on the boards of organizations active in global health


This report takes an in-depth look at power and privilege by examining who governs global health. For the first time, this report assesses the demographics of every board member of the most influential organisations active in global health, which includes 1,946 individuals holding 2,014 board seats across 146 organisations. This is a sub-sample of the 200 organisations annually assessed by GH5050 (see page 8), and excludes those organisations where board membership is mandated through member state participation or where data could not be located. Publicly-available information was collected on the gender and nationality of board members, their place of employment, the sector in which they work, and where the organisation they work for is headquartered.
