Women in Global Health

Healthcare structures around the world are now being tested, and differences in approaches are becoming increasingly visible. As in the majority of crises, women are being disproportionately affected. Reports of domestic violence towards women have increased, while women are also over-represented in care work and family-related care, making it harder to maintain social distancing. Can we take advantage of and learn from this pandemic to develop/change the global health system, so that it becomes more inclusive, accessible and just for all?

With Monika Hauser (Germany), Sima Samar (Afghanistan), Evan Zillén (Sweden) & Professor Nancy Chen (USA, moderator)

About the series, "Inspiring Change in Times of Crisis: Conversations That Matter With Right Livelihood Laureates" The Right Livelihood Foundation and Right Livelihood College at UC Santa Cruz are organizing a number of online conversations this spring and summer. Right Livelihood Award laureates are among those who have implemented large-scale solutions to the root causes of global problems. Now, and in the years immediately ahead, we have an unprecedented opportunity to amplify these ecological and social solutions, frameworks, policies, and social movements.
