The opening of the event was entrusted to the Minister of Equal Opportunities Elena Bonetti, the FMA President Hans-Gert Poettering and the W20 President Elvira Marasco. The debate was animated by the representatives of the International Institutions of the W20 Group and including the Commission and the European Parliament.

The W20, made up of more than 90 delegates from 20 counties, is the G20 engagement group focused on gender equality and aimed at developing policy proposals and recommendations directed to the leaders of the G20 member countries. The W20 Equity in Health Commission aims to specifically address gender inequalities in health systems. Its establishment stems from the idea that gender differences affect health status and the need to therefore develop a gender approach to clinical practice.
