Women’s Health In A World Full of Crises

Whether you’re a man or a woman has a significant impact on your health and well-being, due to both biological and gender-related differences. In fact, many areas of women’s health tend to be under-researched and lack support, which has knock-on implications not just on individuals but communities and populations as well. In a world where we are seeing inequality and inequity deepen as we grapple with geopolitical, economic, environmental and social crises, how is women’s health faring? We find out from Dr Johanna Riha, Research Lead for the Gender Equality and Intersectionality Package, United Nations University’s International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH).
