How Women Frontline Health Workers Around the World Are Keeping You Safe
March 30 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm EDTGratuit
Panel Discussion on CARE’s latest report, Our Best Shot
Join CARE in a discussion with the Frontline Health Workers Coalition and Astellas Global Health Foundation on how paying, protecting, and respecting frontline health workers (70% of whom are women) is not just the right thing to do but essential for ensuring an effective and comprehensive global vaccine campaign against COVID-19.
This conversation will focus on a new technical report from CARE, “Our Best Shot: Women Frontline Health Workers around the world are keeping you safe from COVID-19”, which will be released on March 25, 202`1. The report includes bold new calculations and estimates on what the true cost of a global vaccination campaign would be if the women health workers on the frontlines of global vaccine delivery were fairly paid and had safe and supportive working conditions. Our Best Shot also highlights how investments in equitable global vaccine delivery will save twice as many lives as maximizing vaccine doses for the world’s wealthiest countries, and accelerate economic recovery in countries all over the world.
