Fairmont Waterfront Hotel
900 Canada Pl
Princess Louisa Room

Please save the date for a roundtable breakfast session highlighting experiences of female frontline health workers engaged in immunization, polio eradication and RMNCH efforts globally and join us as we explore the influence of gender on health, social, and economic outcomes in the community.

Participants will share experiences and lessons learned, seeking to answer the questions:

  1. How have frontline health workers been empowered in their community by their work? How do they see their work empowering others?
  2. Has their work influenced progress in their community including health and economic outcomes, community engagements and mobilization, and social norms? How are we defining progress?
  3. What challenges do frontline health workers still face? What strategies can we use to help address these challenges? What strategies can we scale to enable frontline health workers to address the most pressing needs of the community?

The event will feature:

  • Senator Ayesha Raza Farooq, Pakistan
  • Barbara Stilwell, Executive Director, Global Nursing Now Campaign, United Kingdom
  • Bethlehem Asegedew, Communication Officer, CORE Group Polio Project, Ethiopia
  • Cheick Touré, Country Director, IntraHealth, Mali
  • Monique Pat, Aboriginal Liaison Nurse, Vancouver Island Health Authority, Canada
  • Rina Dey, Communication Director, CORE Group Polio Project, India
