This publication aims to contribute to shed light on the inequities between women and men and to show how these inequalities affect state of health, access to health services, and contribution to health care.

The publication is the result of an interagency collaboration of PAHO with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and the United Nations International Research and Training Institute for the Advancement of Women (INSTRAW).
