Presentation: Creating Gender Responsive Health Sytems: Does COVID-19 Provide Us with an Opportunity to Build Back Better?  

Health systems are not gender neutral, yet gender inequities are often neglected in health systems. While gender inequities existed within health systems before the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been made more acute as a result of the pandemic. Gender inequities in leadership and governance, human resources for health, and access to services have only worsened the effects of the pandemic on health systems actors and users – particularly women. This presentation will explore gender inequities within health systems in the context of COVID-19, and how the pandemic may provide us with an opportunity to create more effective, gender responsive, health systems.
