When it comes to the impacts of pollution, gender and age play a huge role in determining exposure risks, and therefore, all genders need to be part of the solution. That said, gender specific strategies and solutions, including those targeted specifically to mothers, pregnant women and other primary care givers, can be incredibly effective at mitigating exposure risks and protecting family - and especially children’s - health.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Encourage female researchers, scientists and youth or NGO leaders, especially in Low-and Middle-Income Countries to study, publish and advocate for attention, resource and pollution to pollution and health problems by featuring their work in at least 2 GAHP newsletters or blogs per year.
Strive to attain gender parity on the GAHP’s Board of Directors by adding two new female Board members by end of 2022.
