Gender and Health Inequalities : from embodiment to health care cascade

Project description

Unveiling the relationship between gender and health inequalities in Europe

Gender and health inequalities exist worldwide. In the EU, the move towards gender equality is proceeding at a snail’s pace. As for differences in health status, these exist both between and within EU member states. The EU-funded GENDHI project will investigate the current situation to explain how gender intersects with other social hierarchies (social class and race/ethnicity) to produce social inequalities in health. Researchers will consider how (un)healthy bodies are socially constructed and how health-seeking behaviours and patterns of care are shaped by gender. The project will develop a triangulation analysis based on quantitative analysis and qualitative data from family monographies, interviews, patients and doctors. The focus will be on hypertension and myocardial infarction as well as depression, Alzheimer’s disease and colorectal cancer.
