About the eBook

This Handbook brings together a groundbreaking collection of chapters that uses a gender lens to explore health, health care and health policy in both the Global South and North. Empirical evidence is drawn from a variety of different settings and points to the many ways in which the gendered dimensions of health have become reworked across the globe. <P><P>This collection includes insightful contributions from 56 leading authorities from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, offering a wealth of knowledge, theoretical reflection, and empirical detail on the essential elements surrounding gender and health. Topics covered include theoretical approaches to understanding gender and health, migration, sexuality, ageing, masculinities, climate change and sexual and reproductive rights. Split into four thematic sections, this book strives to develop a clear road map towards achieving gender justice in health.<P>The <i>Handbook on Gender and Health</i> will be an important resource for researchers, students, and instructors of health policy and family and gender studies.<P><b>Contributors include:</b> G.
