The number of women entering and choosing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics is steadily increasing. These women in STEM are entering the business, industry and research sectors, as well as governance. The decision-making level thus strengthened by women in STEM is therefore better prepared to design and initiate more scientific solutions to development problems, particularly for access to universal health coverage.
During this session, the presentations of the different experts will edify us on the roles and influences that women in STEM could have for the achievement of Universal Health Coverage in Africa after 2030.
