Join us in our Gender Equal Health & Care Workforce Initiative

The Government of France, the World Health Organization and Women in Global Health are partnering in 2021- the International Year of Health and Care Workers- on the Gender Equal Health and Care Workforce Initiative (GEHCWI). This Initiative aims to increase visibility, dialogue, and commitment to action on gender equity in the health and care workforce alongside the UN Women Generation Equality Campaign to accelerate gender equality and mark the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. 

Gender equity in the health and care sector builds a strong foundation for health systems, universal health coverage (UHC) and global health security. The Gender Equal Health and Care Workforce Initiative (GEHCWI) will convene the international community to implement existing global commitments and agree on practical steps to achieve gender equity in the health and care workforce.

The Initiative aims to drive action in the health and care sector under four pillars:
