WHO DG Tedros Calls For Action To Realize Gender Equality In Health Care
World Health Organization: Gender equality must be at the core of ‘Health for All’
In this International Women’s Day statement, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus writes, “On this International Women’s Day, we imagine a world where every woman and girl has access to quality and affordable health care, a world in which women and girls can freely exercise their sexual and reproductive health rights, and one where all women and girls are treated and respected as equals. … At the World Health Organization, we’re speaking up for women and girls’ right to health. When women and girls are able to stay in school longer, plan or prevent pregnancies, and access health services without discrimination, they can improve their economic opportunities, and ultimately transform their futures. But, we also must do more than speak. We must act…” (3/7).
