Resource Spotlight: Promoting Gender Equality in the Health Workforce: An Advocacy Tool
Many countries are striving to strengthen their health workforce and improve health outcomes, but may not be aware of the ways in which gender discrimination is impeding their efforts.
Gender discrimination hinders initiatives to develop and efficiently deploy the health workforce, which can result in unequal distribution and a limited pool of motivated health workers. This in turn negatively impacts the population’s access to high-quality health care.
This new tool helps users understand common forms of gender discrimination, assess whether workers may be experiencing one or more forms of discrimination, and successfully advocate and take action through policy-making and improved management to promote gender equality.
