dc.descriptionThis book argues that two fundamental changes are needed if both women and men are to achieve better health. The first of these is to ensure equal access to all the resources that women and men need for healthy minds and bodies: not only to medical care, but to food, water, shelter, a source of income and a sense of control over one's life. The second is to ensure that health services and resources enable women and men to meet all their physical and mental health needs. Articles included here focus on understandings of reproductive health; integrating gender issues into infectious disease prevention; the impact of HIV/AIDS on women; working with communities to promote health; and on the monitoring and evaluation of health projects from a gender perspective.en_US
