WI-HER Shares about Gender Equity and Social Inclusion in Global Health Supply Chains at an IAPHL Webinar and Skills Building Workshop

by admin

Vienna, VASeptember 8, 2022 – Earlier this summer, WI-HER co-facilitated a discussion on IAPHL with partners JSI and inSupply Health about gender equity and social inclusion (GESI) in the supply chain. In the course of the discussion, it became clear that while there was interest in the topic, more discussion, and skills-building were needed. As a follow-up, WI-HER was invited to continue to share and discuss the application of GESI in the health supply chain, with an additional supplemental opportunity for skills building.

This Thursday, September 15 at 8 am ET (check your local time) WI-HER will join IAPHL forthe Gender Equity and Social Inclusion in Global Health Supply Chains webinar.This interactive webinar will explore how integrating and mainstreaming GESI into supply chain management and functions can contribute to improved health outcomes for all, as well as discuss challenges and opportunities to integrate GESI into global health supply chains through panel presentations and break-out discussions.
