UNGA WEBINAR | Decolonizing Global Health: Perspectives from Nurses and Midwives

Spread the love

In global health, the priority-setting systems, the funding structures, and power dynamics have perpetuated inequities and left so many people behind for too long. At every levelfrom intervention prescription to program design to implementation to policycommunities that are affected by health challenges are left out of the conversation. 

Join Seed Global Health, Frontline Health Workers Coalition, IntraHealth International, and the Nurses Lead | Midwives Lead campaign partners for a virtual conversation on decolonizing global health happening in conjunction with the 75th UN General Assembly. Nurse and midwife leaders will share their perspectives on what it will take to deconstruct the narratives, structures, and policies that perpetuate the social inequality, including racism, colonialism, sexism, and problematic power dynamics inherent in global health.
