Women comprise approximately 42% of the estimated global paid working population. In many countries women comprise over 75% of the health workforce. (World Health Organization Spotlight on Statistics). Strengthening and focusing health systems around primary health care (PHC) is essential to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) and universal health coverage. Nurses are leading PHC and, as health is a prerequisite to achieving all 17 Sustainable Development Goals are the common thread through which all SDGs can be realized. This session explores how women can achieve economic empowerment through a nursing education and career, and be leaders for social justice and equity.
