Resource Spotlight: Strengthening the Health Worker Pipeline through Gender-Transformative Strategies
CapacityPlus conducted a systematic review of 300 articles, reports, program documents, and websites on gender discrimination in higher education, including health worker pre-service education, from all parts of the world. A panel of five experts in gender and in human resources for health then reviewed summaries of 51 interventions identified from the literature search, according to selected characteristics of gender-transformative interventions.
Using the results of the systematic review, the authors of this technical brief provide an overview of how gender discrimination affects health professional students and faculty as well as intervention options that the expert panel identified as having potential to counter gender discrimination. In addition, it offers recommendations for pre-service education institutions and other stakeholders to address these challenges. [from author]
