Gender equality for the present and the future
The UEHP Newsletter #6 is written by women. Cristina Contel Vice President of UEHP and President of the Spanish Private Hospital Federation, ASPE, is coordinating this issue. We propose to demonstrate respect for gender equality in our own organisation and to support the full implications of women at the head of major private federations in the healthcare sector. In Spain, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria and France, all succeed as team management leaders and promoters of human values. In this March edition of the UEHP newsletter, inspired by International Women’s Day, which is celebrated on March 8 each year, we would like to highlight the place of female healthcare professionals and healthcare institution managers in Europe. How does gender equality and equity look in your country? We have asked the Presidents and female General Secretaries of private hospital federations to tackle the question.
