In December 2016, GLHAM co-hosted its first in an ongoing series of public symposiums on global health issues that will produce a policy document with input from across the sector. The first of these symposiums, “Out of the Shadows: The case for investing in women’s mental health,” co-hosted with the Jean Hailes Research Unit at Monash University, brought together Professor Arthur Kleinman, a world expert on women’s mental health, with Victorian-based experts from the public and private sectors, to articulate best practice strategies on keeping women’s—and their children’s—health and wellbeing at the heart of every nation’s sustainable development agenda.
