Professor Robyn Norton
Robyn Norton is co-founder and Principal Director of The George Institute for Global Health. She is Professor of Global Health & Oxford Martin Senior Fellow, University of Oxford; Professor of Public Health, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW Sydney; and Honorary Professor at Peking University.
Professor Norton has published widely and is internationally regarded for her research on the causes, prevention and management of injuries, especially road traffic and fall-related injuries, as well as the management of various critical conditions in surgical and intensive care settings. She was the inaugural Chair and is now Chair Emeritus of the Road Traffic Injuries Research Network, a network supported by the World Bank and the WHO, aimed at building research capacity and research agendas, to address the growing burden of road traffic injuries in low and middle income countries.
She has had a long-standing commitment to improving women’s health and currently leads The George Institute’s research, implementation and advocacy efforts, aimed at improving the health of women and girls worldwide. Most recently she was the lead author on a University of Oxford supported policy paper entitled “Women’s Health: A New Global Agenda”, calling for a greater focus on addressing the burden of non-communicable diseases in women and the importance of a gendered approach to the collection and utilisation of health data.
此外，Robyn教授长期致力于改善妇女健康，她是《妇女健康: 全新全球议程(Women’s Health: A New Global Agenda)》政策文件的主要作者。报告由英国牛津大学发布，其目的是提高慢性病防控在妇女健康议程中的比重，并且呼吁使用性别分类方法来实施健康数据分析，从医疗卫生角度减少性别不平等。作为推动妇女健康议程全球对话的系列报告开篇之作，最终目标是通过驱使政策转变以挽救更多生命。
