Abstract: Despite decades of work to address the gender-based causes of ill health, women are still dying needlessly and in large numbers. Will current initiatives to improve women's health succeed in meeting the targets prescribed in the Millennium Development Goals by 2015? This book presents strategies, approaches, and tools to mainstream gender equity concerns in the formulation of health policy and practice. It brings together case studies from around the world that illustrate ways of addressing the health needs and rights of women and men, and ensuring equal access to health care.
