A Conceptual Framework for Gender-Transformative Supportive Supervision

MARY BETH HASTINGS

 

Because achieving health targets requires a skilled, productive, and motivated workforce, investments in global health increasingly focus on human resources and capacity-building, and include attention to the supervisor-provider relationship. Research suggests that gender dynamics play a profound role in shaping the daily interpersonal interactions between supervisors and providers, thus influencing health worker recruitment, retention, and performance. Yet, gender has been left largely unexamined and unaddressed in efforts to improve conditions for the health workforce.
