What evidence is there about the effects of health care reforms on gender equity, particularly in health?
WHO/Europe, 2005: report by Health Evidence Network.
This is a Health Evidence Network (HEN) evidence report on the effects of health care reforms on gender equity, particularly in health. Emerging evidence shows that health care reforms can affect men and women differently, as a consequence of their different positions as users and producers of health care. This review assesses the impact of four key health care reforms – decentralization, financing, privatization and priority setting – on gender equity in health.
