African Women Rising: Investing in Women as Global Health Leaders for Sustainable Development

Led by: WomenLift Health.

Like in many other regions around the world, African women are at the forefront of healthcare delivery across the continent, providing both paid and unpaid labor where it is needed most. Yet their leadership potential remains largely untapped, with African women making up just a fraction of the 5% representation of women from low- and middle-income countries at the helm of global health organizations. This session will bring together a diverse selection of progressive African professionals to explore the critical need for investing in African women's leadership in global health. Panelists will unpack the realities of African women’s participation in health, share their own experiences, highlight the impacts of empowering women as decision-makers, and outline strategies to accelerate investment in African women as global health leaders for sustainable development.
