The prize aims to spotlight and spur the creation of sex-disaggregated data and gender based research that will help decision-makers make more evidence-based policies to improve the lives of women and strengthen the regional economy.

Officials in Chile, host economy of APEC 2019, raised women’s economic empowerment as a top APEC priority this year. They are launching this year’s prize with the support of Merck, a leading science and technology company.

The APEC Healthy Women, Healthy Economies Research Prize offers business leaders the opportunity to explore and identify their own path to incorporate these recommendations from leading researchers, which will foster women development and will benefit the whole organization.

Since its inception in 2014, the APEC Healthy Women, Healthy Economies initiative has improved women’s health through public-private partnerships. One key outcome has been the cross-sector collaboration in creating The Healthy Women, Healthy Economies Policy Toolkit – a compendium of the issues, actions, and implementing elements for improving women’s health across five areas.

The areas are:

  • workplace health and safety;
  • health awareness and access;
  • sexual and reproductive health;
  • gender-based violence; and
  • work/life Balance.
