Gender (in)equity in global mental health research: A call to action

Women in Global Mental Health Research Group, Kelly Rose-Clarke, Shalini Ahuja, Petra Gronholm

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


In this commentary, we build on work by Gurung and colleagues which highlighted gender inequity in the global mental health research workforce in Nepal (Gurung et al., 2021). We seek to increase awareness of the under-representation of women in global mental health research and its consequences, and we call for change. By women, we refer to all people who identify as women, including trans people. The commentary is informed by conversations with women who are global mental health researchers in the Global North and South at various stages of their careers.
