​​Women for Health SwitchPoint Virtual Exchange: The Power of Female Health Workers in Nigeria will amplify the voices of rural women health workers along with global leaders, artists, students, and policy heads. This interactive virtual gathering will focus on female health workers and will highlight a successful eight-year endeavor to engage rural women in building sustainable health systems.

Addressing both the challenges and successes communities facefrom health care access to internal displacement, trauma, shortages, and inequitiesthis SwitchPoint Virtual Exchange will dive into the resilience and ingenuity of local leadership in addressing critical global health issues.
