Economic empowerment for women health and care workers: The impact of COVID-19

Organized by Women in Global Health, in collaboration with the Government of France and the Government of Liberia

Economic empowerment for women health and care workers: The impact of COVID-19

March 24, 2022

RSVP

 The world is facing a serious health and care worker shortage, with an estimated 18 million needed globally to ensure Universal Health Coverage is reached by the deadline of 2030. Yet the COVID-19 pandemic has not only led to an estimated 80,000 to 180,000 health worker deaths globally, but it has also put a strain on the profession, with estimates of 1 in 5 health workers, particularly women, planning to leave their jobs.

Against this backdrop, Women in Global Health, in collaboration with the Government of France and the Government of Liberia are hosting a Gender Equal Health and Care Workforce high-level meeting at the sidelines of the 66th Commission on the Status of Women.

Global health will only be secure when women in health and care have a fair social contract based on equal pay, decent work, and equality in decision-making.
