UEHP supports gender equality
To celebrate International Women’s Day (8 March), UEHP launched a poster featuring women surgeons working in private hospitals in Europe. Gender Equality was the key message. Equality between women and men is a fundamental value of the EU and UEHP is proud to actively support this major societal principle.
We were fortunate to have the participation of more than 160 Women Surgeons working in European Private Hospitals and to publish their photos illustrating that real life includes gender equality. It is not merely a statement, it is a fact!
Cristina Contel President of ASPE (Spanish Private Hospital Association) and Vice President of UEHP, and myself, Paul Garassus President of UEHP, will be both signing this Editorial today as a demonstration of our common commitment to include gender equality in our everyday professional life.
We had the enthusiastic support of all our Member delegations to develop this communication project but we particularly want to thank our female colleagues who have so graciously agreed to participate. This issue is the expression of our consideration and sincere admiration for their involvement.
Please visit our website and diffuse this poster dedicated to this major common action.
President of the Alliance of Private Health in Spain (ASPE)
Dr Paul Garassus
President of UEHP
