(3) How can the social determinants of health perspective, specifically focusing on gender, advance both conceptualizations and measurements? (4) What are the implications for research in women’s health?

53. Gender and Blindness

REGION:  INTERNATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
Blindness affects 40-45 million people worldwide. This figure will double over the next 25 years without increased prevention of blindness efforts. Most of the blind are elderly and live in developing countries. A meta-analysis of population based surveys on blindness prevalence in Asia, Africa, and the industrialized countries indicates that women bear approximately two-thirds of the burden of blindness in the world. Data that would help us to understand why this is so is limited but there appear to be several reasons why this inequality exists.

REGION:  INTERNATIONAL
Resource Type: Report
TOPIC(S): GENERAL ANALYSES
Examining the gender dimensions of tuberculosis is more than ascertaining which sex has a higher prevalence rate, or a higher case fatality rate. It also includes looking at other issues such as differences in risk of exposure to infection, in health seeking behaviour and healthsystems response, economic consequences, and stigma associated with being known as a tuberculosis patient.
