Virtual Course on Gender and Health in a framework of human rights and diversity - “Promoting Gender Equality in the Caribbean”

Trinidad and Tobago, 15th August, 2013.
 A four day training/orientation meeting for tutors in preparation for a September introduction of the 1st virtual course on gender and health, for the Caribbean, concludes today. PAHO’s Gender and Cultural Diversity Unit (GD) with the support of the PWR/TRT and PWR/CPC is contributing to the paucity of data and information to thoroughly assess the specific gender and health needs and situation of girls and boys, and women and men. It is of great concern to all that boys and men experience high morbidity and mortality, especially between 20 and 39 years, whilst domestic violence and femicide continue to foster morbidity, disability and premature mortality.
