This webinar may be of interest to many on the group – there will be simultaneous English and French translation.  Would be great to see African health economists participating in these critical discussions on gender in health economics!



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.
