Sexually harassed in health care – doubly vulnerable in a hard-hit sector

Health care workers are crucial to the functioning of society. At the same time research shows that sexual harassment is a big problem in the health care sector. Many health care workers report that they have been subjected to sexual harassment at work. The ongoing pandemic has also starkly highlighted shortcomings in the health care sector’s working conditions, which is already a vulnerable sector.

Nordic Information on Gender, NIKK, and the Nordic Institute for Advanced Training in Occupational Health, NIVA, invite you to a webinar on these highly topical issues. Learn about the experience of the Icelandic health care sector, the Norwegian Nurses Federation and the newly appointed Swedish Equality Ombudsman, in conversation on the problem as well as important measures and solutions to it.
