Research for stronger health systems during and after crisis

Promoting women’s leadership in the post-conflict health sector in Cambodia

Tuesday, 29 Aug 2017

Research on gender equity in human resource management for health in post-conflict settings is limited, and although women account for the vast majority of the global health workforce, they are under-represented in leadership positions. Gender inequity in the workforce can restrict entry into the health sector, career progression, access to professional education opportunities, and motivation.

To fill the gap in the evidence base, ReBUILD and RinGs, carried out qualitative research on women's leadership in the health sector in Battambang province, Cambodia.

The RinGs programme has just published a brief based on this work.
