International Women's Day is celebrated on 8 March each year, and is a focal point in the movement for women's rights.
Part of this movement is recognising the role that gender balance plays in thriving communities.
With 54 percent of the respondents in our 2017 Workforce Survey identifying as female, we're particularly mindful of the contributions women make to general practice.
For International Women's Day this year, we want to celebrate the work that New Zealand's women and health professionals do in our communities.
