An analysis of 115 decision-making and key advisory bodies from 87 countries found that over 85% contain mostly men and only 11% contain predominantly women, with gender parity in just 3.5%. The situation wasn't much better at the international level, according to the research that published Thursday in the journal BMJ Global Health. For instance, the WHO’s first, second and third International Health Regulations Emergency Committee members consisted of 23.8%, 23.8% and 37.5% women, respectively.
