Women’s Enrollment in the Health Workforce Literature Review

Women’s Enrollment in the Health Workforce Literature Review

The Government of Jordan recognizes the critical importance of an accessible and high-performing health workforce for the achievement of its universal health coverage objectives. One of the human resources for health (HRH) challenges identified by the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Jordan is the underrepresentation of female health workers in specific sectors/disciplines and certain geographical regions.

To understand the factors underlying female enrollment in nursing and medical education, the challenges of female graduates to enter the labor market, and the specific challenges female workers encounter in their workplaces, HRH2030 conducted a literature review. This review provides an understanding of the nature, scope, depth, and breadth of existing policy documents, relevant studies, reports, academic articles, and data sources on women’s enrollment in the MOH health workforce.
