GESI Statement

Our GESI Statement

Cambridge Global Health Partnerships’ (CGHP) mission is to work in partnership to inspire and enable people to improve healthcare globally.

We recognise that gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) are central to safe, ethical and effective global health partnerships. We are committed to eliminating discrimination and fostering an inclusive environment within the organisation and our partnerships.

This statement affirms our commitment to GESI, and that this is reflected in all our policies, procedures, and everyday practices.

Gender Equality – Gender equality ensures that women, men and people of other genders have equal rights, opportunities, and respect. Gender equality is the end goal of gender equity.

Social Inclusion – Social inclusion includes the inclusion of women and girls as well as other vulnerable groups who are at risk of exclusion within a particular context. Such groups may include: women and girls, adolescents and young people, the elderly, people living with disabilities, ethnic minorities, religious minorities, people living with a stigmatising illness, internally displaced people, migrant populations, nomadic communities, members of minority clans or sub-clans, people living in urban settlements or geographically inaccessible districts, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (or questioning), and intersex community, groups with less education, and the very poor.
