International Women’s Day: Challenging Health Inequalities
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 and the campaign theme of 2021, ‘Choose To Challenge’, PPP is hosting a virtual conference entitled ‘Challenging Health Inequalities’, on Monday, 8th March 2021 (13:00-16:30).
This virtual event will look at gendered health inequalities, with a view to producing actionable policy insights that can improve healthcare outcomes for all. Gender is a key determinant of health. Health conditions, health behaviours, service access, and exposure to health risks all vary considerably by sex and gender. Using a solution-oriented approach, this event will address gendered healthcare inequalities by looking at three key policy areas: reproductive health; gender, ageing and health; and racial disparities in women’s healthcare.
