Violence Against Women and Girls: Let's Reframe This Pandemic | Alice Han | TEDxBeaconStreet

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is a global pandemic that threatens their health. Yet health systems worldwide often do not recognize VAWG as a health problem nor commit to their critically needed role to address it. We need rapid transformation. Let’s reframe the conversation: through my dual lens as a medical doctor and epidemiologist, I propose that VAWG must be thought of and addressed as a disease. Alice Han is a Canadian physician with global health research interests in humanitarian settings and gender-based violence (GBV). She has published and presented internationally on GBV in Latin America and the Caribbean. Her current work includes examining disaster preparedness in the Philippines with the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, and contraceptive practices of Syrian child brides in Lebanon. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
