Gender and health financing

This presentation was delivered by Professor Sophie Witter at the IHEA 2023 conference at a session of the same name.


COVID-19 has highlighted how gender-unequal many health systems are. Whilst calls to improve gender equality in health and health care are increasing, a gender equality lens and gender analysis, remain relatively neglected in health economics. This session aimed to initiate a dialogue on the state of gender in health economics and discuss priority areas for research.
