Today is #InternationalWomensDay

Health technologies and digital health services are powerful tools that enable women and girls to make informed decisions about their health needs

Women living in rural areas face many barriers to health services including transportation and social and economic factors.

Equitable access to health services, including e-health services, is critical for women and girls living in rural areas.

Women make up 70% of the health workforce globally, incl. 90% of all nurses, BUT
👩🏻‍⚕️ They occupy only 25% of global health leadership roles
👩🏻‍⚕️ On average earn 25% less than their male colleagues

We must address the root causes of disparities in women’s and girl’s health

#HealthForAll Image
The report reveals concerning setbacks for women’s health, as maternal death rates either increased or stagnated in nearly all regions of the world.
While there was progress in reducing maternal deaths between 2000 & 2015, gains largely stalled, or even reversed, after this point
There were an estimated 287,000 maternal deaths in 2020. Most were in low- and middle-income countries.

Every single one of these is a tragic loss of life

I’ve a younger brother diagnosed with mitral valve stenosis in #Tigray. Due to lack of proper medical attention, his medical condition is deteriorating by the day. Ever-since the decision to resume flights to #Tigray came by, I was hoping to get him out of #Tigray. @flyethiopian
To that end, I bought a flight ticket for him. Despite having a medical certificate that would justify his trip, they couldn’t let him out. He missed his flight with no fault of his. I paid a sanction fee so he can try another day. @flyethiopian
Despite successive efforts to fly to Addis so he can seek proper medical attention, he was being denied. Putting aside the unreasonable high cost to extend the validity of the ticket, he lost hope and he doesn’t want to try anymore. @flyethiopian

Most of these deaths were preventable with access to quality healthcare
