Goalkeepers 2019: Examing inequality

How geography and gender stack the deck for (or against) you: “No matter where you are born, life will be harder if you are born a girl”. This statement comes from the 2019 Goalkeepers Report, published by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It analyses layers of inequality and how geography and gender affect peoples’ lives. Geography (place of birth) and gender are major determinants of health, success and overall well-being.  The report also underlines the immense progress made in poor countries over the past 20 years. It is available in English, French, German, Chinese and Hindi.
