We are very pleased to announce the launch of our report “Capacity Building of Frontline Health Workers” a summary of expert perspectives from the Johnson & Johnson-GlobeScan SDG Leadership Forum for Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being.
Our global, online, text-based discussion explored what was needed to build capacity and empower women in the health workforce, particularly in low-and middle-income countries.
A focus on education and training — from curriculum standardization and knowledge-sharing models to improving access to fundamentally changing gendered societal norms — was highlighted as key to building the capacity of health workers, with many successful case studies shared.
For large private sector and non-profit organizations looking for ways to help, Forum participants pointed to the support required in building management capacity, developing effective partnerships, and assisting with advocacy.
