Why should finance ministers, other policymakers, and donors increase investment in health and care workers? They are key to reaching universal health coverage and improving health equity. They are a crucial component of pandemic preparedness and response. They play critical roles in climate change mitigation and adaptation, responding to climate change induced health risks. Most health and care workers are women, so investing in them means investing in women's empowerment.
