Gender is one of the important set of dimensions along which every society is organised and almost often stratified. An understanding of gender and gender relations is important to understand its implications on health. There is an intrinsic need to look at health from a gender perspective, looking at them in relationship with other dimensions including health systems, policy and program environment, demographic structures, violence and humanitarian emergencies.
The course on Gender and Health (G&H) is developed with the aim of building capacities of scholars, researchers and teaching staff from partner institutions in Research on Social Determinants of Health. Designed in a blended learning format, the course will be taught by a multidisciplinary team from IIPHG and experts from outside it.
