On 12 July, Global Health 50/50, an initiative that assesses organizational commitment to gender equality in global health, launched the sixth edition of its report. MMV has been ranked a “very high performer” in the accompanying scoring index for the second consecutive year, receiving the highest possible score on eight of ten pillars including public commitment to gender equality, board diversity and sex disaggregation of data. MMV also received recognition as a ”fast riser" for the organization's progress over consecutive years.
The Global Health 50/50 annual report and index provides the most comprehensive overview of the state of gender and equity in global health. It is evidence-based, evaluating over 200 of the most influential organizations active in health and health policy. The report is key to ensuring that these topics remain on the agenda for global health policy and organizational decision-making.

MMV’s CEO, Dr David Reddy, acknowledges that there is still more to do: “It is satisfying to see the progress we have made as an organization year on year. Achieving diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace, in our leadership and in our programs remains an MMV priority today and going forward.”
