Health and Gender: Resilience and Vulnerability Factors For Women’s Health in the Contemporary Society (PDF) presents a brief and comprehensive overview of the most important protective and risk factors for women’s health, and reviews the crucial areas of medical science from a gender perspective. Many scientific experiments and studies have shown how gender differences significantly influence the clinical presentation of physical and mental health disorders as well as responses to treatments. This textbook stresses these issues, while at the same time reflecting on the practical implications of the theoretical knowledge presented. It also explores the organization of social and health services, which should increasingly take into account the specificities associated to gender differences and where equality is based on truly embracing these differences. The last part provides insights into the experiences and testimonies collected by the authors of the book. Written by a multidisciplinary team of medical, psychosocial, and humanities professionals, this ebook is of interest to health professionals and medical students.
