In collaboration with USAID and PEPFAR, HRH2030 is convening a discussion to highlight the growing evidence that employment in the health sector empowers female health workers, their families, and communities.

Featuring Kelly Saldaña (Director, Office of Health Systems, USAID Bureau for Global Health), Michelle Bekkering (Senior Coordinator for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment / Deputy Assistant Administrator, USAID Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment), Jim Campbell (Director, Health Workforce, World Health Organization) and Roopa Dhatt (Executive Director and Co-Founder of Women in Global Health), along with a series of speakers and panelists, please join us at the event as we discuss:

  • Empowerment through health workforce employment, including financial, leadership and decision-making opportunities, educational benefits, community respect and trust
  • Empowerment of young females to mitigate health risk, especially for HIV, and overcome structural inequalities to take charge of their life choices and health benefits
  • Significance of female health workers’ role in providing accessible, accountable, affordable, and reliable health services and in contributing to further empowerment
  • High-level priorities, evidence on progress in the health workforce, and best practices to increase opportunities for greater coordination across sectors
