Health outcomes are defined by many factors. Among them, biological considerations have an obvious impact, but so too is it imperative to understand gender-sensitive analyses of socioeconomic, political and environmental concerns. In addition, evidence shows that roles and relationship based on male and female status, gender identification, values, and behaviors all influence the health outcomes of individuals and societies.
This webinar will explore how the Aga Khan University and its partners in the Aga Khan Development Network can work in collaboration with other global and local organizations to mount a program of research, education, and coordinated action in South and Central Asia and East Africa. The outcome of the webinar should be the launch of a targeted work program by the Institute of Global Health and Development on gender equity and health.
