There is no doubt about the overlap between human health and environmental concerns - to protect population health, it is necessary to also protect the natural systems sustaining human life. But does global health and its current architecture really care about the planet? Can the new field of planetary health get the traction needed to have real political impact? Is the key challenge explaining the complexity of the environmental impact on human health? Or is the main problem the scale of the potential solutions required?

Join us at the Global Health Lab to find out!


Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - 12:30 to 14:00

The seminar will present the results of a meta-analysis examining the overall impact of women’s empowerment projects evaluated as part of Oxfam GB’s Effectiveness Reviews. It provides an example of how using meta-analysis in the presence of a robust organisational global evaluation framework can enable evidence-based learning, organisational accountability and better programme implementation. Results show a positive and significant impact on the Women’s Empowerment Index and mixed results with its individual indicators. It also found statically significant overall effects where the individual studies were too underpowered to detect impact.
