Women for Women's Health: Data Modeling, Analytics and Training in Colombia

Sandra Agudelo-Londoño of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogota, in collaboration with various partners across Colombia including Yadira Eugenia Borrero Ramirez at the University of Antioquia in Medellín, will apply gender-transformative and feminist-based approaches to data analysis to identify the structural barriers affecting women's health in Colombia. Women's health is a complex issue with biological, historical, sociocultural, economic, and political aspects. The Global South has few female data modelers and no training or mentoring networks for women. They have therefore assembled an interdisciplinary group of female scholars and will deploy five virtual training courses on an open and free educational platform, focusing on gender, feminism, and health data analysis, alongside political advocacy, and data-driven decisions. They will also create a health data feminist network and use an existing gender-specific health and social dataset to conduct a comprehensive analysis focused on health issues disproportionally affecting women.
