The latest policy paper from the Oxford Martin School, ‘Women’s Health: A New Global Agenda’, was launched on 10 February, 2016, at a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health.

It was discussed by a panel that included Dame Una O’Brien, the Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health, Lord Ribeiro, former President of the Royal College of Surgeons, Elizabeth Smith, Head of Profession for Health, Department for International Development, and group Co-Chair Dan Poulter MP.
