Pregnant women should also be supported in their work places and then pregnant women shouldn't be denied jobs because they are pregnant. Pregnancy is not a diseases.

Thank you @Fredrick for raising the importance of designing interventions focussed on inclusive health services with strengthening the capacity of health care workers. What is the preferred approach with improving inclusive health services for other underserved populations including pregnant unmarried adolescents and transactional sex workers?

Thank you Fredrick for your insight. Here in Lagos Nigeria most buildings do not have means for people in Wheel chair to enter places like Hospitals, Churches, Offices, hotels etc in their wheel chair. Then women in wheel chairs are abused too...very sad.

Merci Fidelia. Une traduction de ma reponse a la 1ere question
Marie Ba
01:39:48
Lorsque nous parlons de diversité et de solidarité en matière de santé, je considère l’accès à des soins de santé et à des informations de qualité comme un droit de l’homme, qui ne devrait donc pas dépendre de l’économie, du sexe, de l’âge, des croyances religieuses ou d’autres circonstances sociales. Lorsque nous parlons de diversité, nous parlons de construire notre voix collective et d'apprendre où et comment partager cette voix - ce pouvoir - pour le plus grand bénéfice.- Il est donc important, je pense, de reconnaître que notre table s’est agrandie et diversifiée, mais beaucoup plus peut et doit être fait. Je pense que des forums comme ceux-ci visent à s'attaquer là où nous échouons. Nous devons apprendre des jeunes femmes et hommes et les inclure à notre table non pas en tant que représentants ou symboles
Marie Ba
01:40:16
mais en tant que véritables partenaires. N'oublions pas d'avoir des hommes et des garçons également autour de la table. Faire de ce problème une question réservée aux femmes est parfois un mauvais service à la cause et nous avons besoin de l'adhésion de toutes les parties.- Il existe également un besoin de diversité et de solidarité dans le domaine de la santé mondiale pour permettre à des voix plus authentiques de mener des conversations en tant que vecteurs et facilitateurs. Les femmes et les filles devraient pouvoir regarder de l'autre côté de la table et voir des gens qui les regardent vraiment et qui les regardent vraiment, leur ressemblent et surtout comprennent leurs expériences.Il nous faut egalement prendre en compte la langue qui peut representer une barriere et qui exclu des pays et experiences de representants francophones qui ont leur mot egalement a dire et d'importantes contributions a faire
