|Authors:||World Health Organization, Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean|
|Abstract:||Gender inequities determine much about the health risks a woman faces in her life, her knowledge, her vulnerability, personal resilience, capacity, self-confidence and access to social support systems which help her to deal with health problems as they arise. To address gender inequities that form barriers to health access specific to women, it is important that health systems ensure comprehensive quality health care services are available for women, and also that women are included in health planning processes. This publication highlights the status of gender equity for women in the Region. It describes how social opportunities impact upon health outcomes and how gender issues influence access to, and utilization of health care|
