Gender in health

Gender plays a specific role both in the incidence and the prevalence of specific pathologies, as well as in their treatment and impact in terms of well-being and recovery. This is due to the interrelations between sex-related biological differences and socioeconomic and cultural factors that affect the behaviour of women and men and their access to health services.
