On the 5th of April, DRASA participated in the Health Heroes +SocialGood: Empowering Health Workers Worldwide event hosted by the Frontline Health Workers Coalition, Johnson and Johnson, and the United Nations Foundation. The goal of the event was to inspire action and investment to address critical challenges and solutions in the health workforce.
More than 150 people representing high-level policy makers and stakeholders in global development, foreign policy, and innovation attended the event with many more tuning into the livestream online.
The Health Heroes event was a day full of important discussions and our Deputy Chairwoman Dr. Ama Adadevoh participated in a panel called Threats to Health Security: Can Health Workers Hold Back the Tide?
The other 2 members of the panel were:
Dr. Ama Adadevoh spoke on the importance of healthworkers in fighting public health threats and shared the story of her sister, Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh.
Dr. Kate Tulenko, a member of our Board of Advisors, was also present at the event.
