Information Package Men, Gender Equity & Health

This information package on men, gender equity and health looks at how gender roles affect the health of both men and women. It addresses health problems including HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, communicable disease, chronic disease and mental health, as well as health-related activities including tobacco, alcohol and drug use and parenting.

The package, which is aimed at WHO staff, the global public health community and interested civil society groups, reviews the issues that are central to the relationship between gender equity and each of these health problems and health-related activities, as well as the current policy and programme responses to these issues. Based on this review, the package offers some key recommendations for the public health community on policy, programming and research.
