Occupational segregation by sex is one of the most important and enduring aspects of the labour market globally. This segregation is particularly apparent in health care where women make up over 70% of the health and social care workforce. Yet they remain vertically segregated to the lower tiers of the health system. This is evidenced by the vast numbers of women who make up Community Health Worker cadres worldwide. Tackling these gendered distortions in the health labour workforce is becoming a global priority, with a recent Global Health Workforce Network call for evidence in this area.
