EVENT: Health Systems: What's Gender Got to Do with It? - Feb 15th 13:00 GMT

News

Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

EVENT: Health Systems: What's Gender Got to Do with It? - Feb 15th 13:00 GMT

Future Health Systems

Monday 15 February 2016 13:00 to 14:30 GMT, Room 121 at the Institute of Development Studies, UK

Health systems are not gender neutral; gender is a key social stratifier, which affects health system needs, experiences, and outcomes. Yet, health systems research (HSR) often fails to sufficiently consider gender as a social relation.

Building on and presenting the work of “Research in Gender and Ethics: Building Stronger Health Systems” (RinGs), Rosemary Morgan - Research Fellow at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland with the RinGs project - will explore why it is important to consider gender within health systems and health systems research. The session will include an interactive creative communications exercise to highlight the significance of gender within health systems.

All welcome!
