Gendered nature of health policies

Health policies do not exist in a vacuum; they are influenced by and reflect societal norms, biases and structures. Gender, being a fundamental aspect of society, significantly impacts how health policies are crafted, implemented and experienced. Historically, health research and policies have often been gender-blind, leading to gaps in understanding and addressing the specific health needs of different genders. By studying the gendered nature of health policies, students can identify these gaps and work towards more equitable health outcomes for all.

This course is for 2nd year MIA, MPP and MDS students only.
