Decolonizing Global Health: Perspectives from Nurses and Midwives

Organized by Frontline Health Workers Coalition, IntraHealth International, and Seed Global Health

Decolonizing Global Health: Perspectives from Nurses and Midwives

September 25, 2020


In global health, the priority-setting systems, the funding structures, and power dynamics have perpetuated inequities and left so many people behind for too long. At every level—from intervention prescription to program design to implementation to policy—communities that are affected by health challenges are left out of the conversation.

This event, happening during the 75th UN General Assembly, will feature nurse and midwife leaders who will share their perspectives on what it will take to deconstruct the narratives, structures, and policies that perpetuate the social inequality, including racism, colonialism, sexism, and problematic power dynamics inherent in global health.

Tune in to hear from:
– Angela Nguku, Founder and Executive Director, White Ribbon Alliance Kenya
– Crystal Lander, Executive Director Global Affairs, Pathfinder International
– Dr. Edward Kumakech, Associate Professor of Nursing and Dean, Faculty of Health Sciences, Lira University
– Judy Khanyola, Chair, Center for Nursing and Midwifery, University of Global Health Equity
– Margaret Phiri, Nursing and Midwifery Advisor, Seed Global Health
– Michelle Drew, President, Black Coalition for Safe Motherhood and Executive Director, Ubuntu Black Family Wellness Collective
– Tembi Mugore, Senior Advisor, IntraHealth International
