Gender inequalities in the health workforce remain a serious problem: the number of women making important decisions and in leadership roles is too small. For example, women make up 70% of the health workforce, but only 25% are in leadership positions.
It is more difficult for a woman to get a promotion than for men.

I recently decided to open an online store and in order to increase efficiency I decided to take part in the ATN affiliate program https://www.atncorp.com/affiliate-program . A person (owner of an Internet resource or partner) participating in the affiliate program receives a small reward for any transaction carried out on his recommendation.
