Gender Health Equity Over the Life Course

Identifying and overcoming the barriers women face in accessing health systems in low-resource settings

Monday, 8 October 2018 from 8.30-12.30pm in the ACC Room 12 of the Global Symposium on Health Systems, Liverpool UK 

Evidence shows that there are differences in how women and men experience disease and other health issues, and how they access and are treated by health systems. We need a better understanding of these differences and the barriers women face in accessing the care they need, especially in low-resource settings.

The Task Force on Women and Non-Communicable Diseases invites you to register for the event here.
