Join Women Deliver and Women in Global Health for this World Health Worker Week webinar “Global Health Security: Delivered by Women During COVID-19 and Beyond” on Thursday, April 9 8-9:30 a.m. EDT.
Women make up 70% of the global health workforce and are on the frontlines of health emergencies, including the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. In order for health workers to fully deliver health care to all, within and beyond emergencies, their health, safety and rights must be met. This discussion will feature health workers and advocates highlighting the critical role of women in the health workforce. Speakers will share their experiences and perspectives on upholding global health security, responding to health crises, and maintaining core women’s health services in emergency settings, as well as provide recommendations and actions to propel advocacy to support investments in and commitments to women in the health workforce.
