Health Systems Global organises a webinar on Gender and COVID-19: Close-to-community providers in fragile settings and vulnerable communities during crisis 30 September 2021 from 1pm - 2.30pm (CET).

 

Organiser: Health Systems Global 

 

Description: 

Close-to-community health care providers, such as community health workers, play a vital role in supporting their local health systems. Their roles can be particularly crucial in fragile and shock-prone settings and during times of crisis, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This webinar is an opportunity to hear how three factors – gender, COVID-19, and fragility – are interplaying in the work and lives of close-to-community health care providers worldwide, with a focus on their experiences in  Brazil, Lebanon, Sierra Leone, and Nepal. An overview of the global situation for these vital workers will also be presented.
