Where is Gender in Health Economics?
September 28, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am EDT
Presenters: Veloshnee Govender, Rajalakshmi RamPrakash, Michelle Remme, Lavanya Vijayasingham
In this webinar we argue that gender equity has been relatively neglected in the field of health economics. This neglect has been to the detriment of building theory, research and health policy and programme implementation. We will illustrate our argument through specific application of gender analysis in selected areas of health economics including health financing, economic evaluation and access to health care. Through this webinar, we hope to stimulate and advance further thought, discussion and inquiry as well as encourage research and build the evidence across diverse settings on the topic of gender equity and health economics towards advancing gender equality and equity.
Speakers: Veloshnee Govender (Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, World Health Organization); Rajalakshmi RamPrakash (Ramalingaswami Centre on Equity and Social Determinants of Health; Public Health Foundation of India); Michelle Remme (The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria); Lavanya Vijayasingham (London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine)
