Health and Gender Health Inequalities: a longitudinal analysis using the Survey of Health Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE)

Project description

Addressing the gender differences in health

Illness affects men and women differently. Gender inequality can also be turned into health risk by discriminatory values, beliefs, and practices. This is a major concern across Europe. A cross-country longitudinal approach is necessary in order to tackle the origins and evolution of health inequalities and to understand the heterogeneity of these type of disparities with a geographical perspective. The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) HI-GEN-SHARE project will address these fundamental issues on the basis of the findings of the Survey of Health and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) and Eurostat data about healthcare supply. The project’s findings will advance our understanding of health inequalities and assist policymakers address gender health disparities throughout Europe.
