Sustainability, Case Study, Goal 5: Gender equality

In 2018, the ‘Strengthening Women’s Leadership in the Health Sector Conference’ was held in Jordan, where stakeholders and policymakers identified major opportunities and barriers facing professional women in the healthcare sector.

Several representatives from Hikma attended the event, which was organised by USAID. Following the conference, participants established the Women Leaders in Health Steering Committee. The goal of the Committee is to help women in Jordan reach positions of leadership, particularly in healthcare. Sandra Shaqareq, a member of our Hospital Unit team, was selected as Vice Chair of the Committee.
