Film: Are Women of the Indian Sundarbans Living in the Dark?

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.

Film: Are Women of the Indian Sundarbans Living in the Dark?

Future Health Systems

Future Health Systems is pleased to announce the launch of a new film, produced by the FHS India team - Are Women of the Indian Sundarbans Living in the Dark? This film was based on a joint study by FHS and Research in Gender and Ethics (RinGs): Building Stronger Health Systems.

World-wide, women experience a higher burden of visual impairments than men, and this increases with age. This short film highlights the gendered dimension of seeking eye health care in the Indian Sundarbans - a climatically vulnerable setting.

It documents an intersectional approach to explore how gender cross cuts with other social determinants of health - such as age, poverty, education and risky behaviours - to influence the prevalence of visual impairments among women and men 50 years and above in the Indian Sundarbans.
