Serier – Health Division DocumentDescription:
This overview is intended as a starting point or stimulus for consideration of gender issues in relation to health and the health sector. It does not aim to be comprehensive but to suggest ways in in which gender-based differences and inequalities are relevant to health status and access to health care. The implications of these factors are briefly explored in relation to broad themes in health sector programming.
