Evidence-based Interventions to Promote Women in Health Management in Jordan

To best strategize ways to reduce gender inequalities in Jordan’s public and private health sectors and to promote qualified women into the decision-making sphere, stakeholders, including government and health institutions, need to understand the barriers and enablers to women’s career advancement to management positions in this workspace. Gender parity will strengthen the overall health system, which is critical for enhanced health outcomes in Jordan.

Utilizing quantitative and qualitative data collection techniques, HRH2030 was able to gather vital information to improve gender parity and optimize participation, performance, productivity, and efficiency of Jordan’s human resources for health. The study included both female and male health professionals from a variety of health sectors (the Ministry of Health, university hospitals, and the private sector) and from a range of health professions (including physicians, registered nurses/midwives, and pharmacists).
