May 21 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am
Organized by Alliance for Gender Equality and UHC
Please join the Alliance for Gender Equality and UHC for a webinar in conjunction with the 73rd World Health Assembly (WHA) titled, “Grounding Health Systems in Gender Equality to Achieve Universal Health Coverage.” The webinar will take place on Thursday, May 21 from 8:30 – 10:00 AM EDT.
This webinar will highlight opportunities to continue momentum and action for gender equality in Universal Health Coverage (UHC), examine progress in building UHC systems that prioritize gender equality, and emphasize how health systems grounded in gender-responsive UHC – inclusive of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) – are stronger and more resilient for the long term.
Speakers will include civil society, youth, multilateral and government representatives. They will discuss how health systems based on UHC and grounded in gender equality will improve health outcomes for all and foster resiliency to withstand crises, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, and deliver for the long term. They will also underscore why continued commitments and investments for gender equality and SRHR in UHC are as critical now as ever.
