On October 12, the South Africa Health Technologies Advocacy Coalition (SAHTAC) in partnership with PATH and Campaigning for Cancer hosted the webinar Diversity and Gender Equity in Health R&D. The purpose of the webinar was to discuss and understand the barriers, challenges and how to achieve diversity and gender equity in Health R&D. The aim was also to understand and explore how to promote equitable access to health products. SAHTAC’s Primary Outcome 4 is targeting for increased salience of diversity and gender equity in health research. This outcome focusses on both diversity and gender equity in research participation and equitable access to health products. SAHTAC aims to strengthen champions (research participants, community stakeholders, scientists, CSOs, government) to advance issues regarding equitable access to health products.
