A High Level Digital Summit: Women in Global Health Security

Foreign Policy 

The COVID-19 crisis has been a stark reminder that global health is a fundamental security concern. The pandemic has exposed deep inequalities in health and social systems at global and national levels, including gender inequities, weakening our collective ability to tackle COVID-19 and generate improved health outcomes into the future. We can take steps now to build back better and bring the important conversation about equality and health into the international security arena.

COVID 50/50 Action Lab 2: Women, Leadership & Power

Women in Global Health 

Female health and social care workers deliver the majority of care in all settings and the barriers they face at work undermine their own well-being and constrain progress on gender equality. As demands for health care rise due to COVID-19, existing challenges are exacerbated and new pressures for health and social care workers are created worldwide. Women clustered into lower status and lower paid jobs in the global health workforce are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection, compounded by exhaustion and mental stress.

COVID-19: Where are the women?

Georgetown University 

Outbreaks affect men and women differently. This has been evident during Ebola, Zika and Cholera, but has become acutely evident during COVID-19. Not only are women disproportionately represented as healthcare workers on the frontline, but they also are doubly burdened with the informal labour within homes as shelter in place orders are implemented and schools are closed. Beyond this, domestic violence rates have skyrocketed, and access to sexual reproductive health services have been altered and/or have ceased. These pose real risks to women’s safety and health. This seminar examines these gendered effects of COVID-19 and asks: where are the women? Are governments thinking about them, and if not, why not?

Women, Leadership & Power: COVID-19 50/50 Action Labs

Women in Global Health 

Women’s under-representation in health leadership means health systems lose the perspectives, knowledge and expertise of the women who know those systems best. On a turn, that limits the ability of health systems combatting COVID-19 to prevent and respond to the pandemic adequately and keep communities healthy. Women delivering health also need decent work, adequate protection and terms and conditions that support their physical and mental well-being. It's time for a change.

Investing in Health: the Key to Building Back Better from COVID-19 and Accelerating Progress for UHC and Sustainable Development

United Nations 

As we are witnessing with COVID-19, when faced with a pandemic, the burden on health systems endangers global health security and has far-reaching economic, social, and developmental consequences, threatening progress made on the SDGs. Universal health coverage and strong health systems, supported by sufficient financial and human resources, are a critical defense against disease outbreaks, and a necessary norm for sustaining good health outcomes. Intersectoral action for health, including investments in pandemic preparedness, enables governments to prevent and/or respond effectively to outbreaks. This event will consider critical investments needed to ensure robust and agile health systems for maximizing human well-being.

Open Letter on the impact of COVID-19 on African women: bold actions to mitigate and drive meaningful reconstruction efforts

Newzroom Afrika

Women and black and coloured - academics are still under-represented at South Africa’s institutions of higher learning. A task team appointed by the Minister of Higher Education, Dr. Blade Nzimande, on the progression of black South African academics, found a massive gap at senior levels of most universities. One of the reasons is the low number of black and women academics in the postdoctoral pipeline. For more discussion, we chat with Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, vice-chancellor of the University of Cape Town and Prof Ahmed Bawa, the CEO of Universities South Africa.

Act Committed Together (ACT): A Roadmap to Achieve ICPD

International Planned Parenthood Federation 

To celebrate World’s Population Day, IPPF is launching the report ICPD+25 NAIROBI SUMMIT – A roadmap for fulfilling the promise.

Aimed to galvanise political energy for national change, the report analyses commitments made by governments of 137 countries who participated at the Summit and identifies thematic patterns, gaps, and regional and global trends. It includes a database where government commitments will be easily accessible as well as briefings and regional versions translated to five languages.

We hope that these tools will be used by civil society to work with Governments and ensure that the promises of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action and Agenda 2030 become a reality and that women and girls have autonomy over their bodies and their lives.
