Gender Barriers in Health Workforce Sustainability (Thursday 24th May 2018, 11.00-12.30)

Vulnerabilities in health systems underscore the need for competent and inclusive healthcare leadership. Gender inequalities such as unequal opportunities in education, recruitment and career advancement, stereotypes and work/life imbalance, impede development of such comprehensive leadership. The workshop aims to show how the lack of gender equality, diversity and leadership adversely impact upon health and development outcomes; how healthcare workforce diversity could equalize opportunities and overcome barriers to achieve efficient governance and sustainability responsive to pressing needs of patients, the health workforce and systems.
