This high-level dialogue will include stakeholders from multilateral organizations, development banks, NGOs, global governments and the private sector. This event will occur on the sideline of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and will focus on the importance of prioritizing women’s health in attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and economic recovery. Part of the discussion will be dedicated to addressing the gaps in health coverage for women and the need to promote gender equality in national recovery plans. In addition, it will discuss how governments will have to better understand the gender impact of policy responses and the link of women to GDP growth as they adopt structural policies to accelerate economic recovery, target measures to facilitate job creation and inclusive economic recovery and as they face falling birth rates, greying populations and shrinking labor pools. Finally, the panel will discuss how governments can fund women’s health and how sustainable linked bonds are changing the investment landscape for governments and companies alike.
