Gender Equity Health Monitor

Under Pakistan’s Power Delegation of fourteen dynamic women leaders at Generation Equality Forum 2021 Paris, Pakistan committed to further gender equality in the health workforce. Women in Global Health Pakistan, along with the support of dedicated women health professionals, has been striving successfully towards achieving these commitments. The Gender Equal Healthcare Workforce Initiative (GEHCWI) (launched in February 2021), alongside the UN Women Generation Equality Campaign, aims to increase visibility, dialogue, technical outputs and commitment to action on improving gender equity in the health and care workforce. The commitments serve as a driving force, bringing the important issue of gender inequality in health to the spotlight and aiming to stimulate initiatives and policy discussions to change the landscape of the health sector, making it more conducive, enabling and empowering for women. It particularly aims to drive action in the health and care sectors in four areas:

  1. Increasing in the proportion of women health workers in leadership roles
  2. Recognizing the value of unpaid health care work and importance of equal pay in the health and social sectors
  3. Protecting women health workers from harassment and violence in the workplace
  4. Ensuring safe and decent working conditions for all health workers, everywhere

The Gender Equity Health Monitor aims to track the progress of the commitments. WGH Pakistan is actively leading and implementing key research and advocacy engagements in this regard and the table below serves as a live activity monitor to follow through the national commitments.
