CoR Interregional Group on Health and Well-being: “Addressing the challenge of gender and health”
30 June @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
EUREGHA – the reference network of European Regional and Local Health Authorities – is pleased to invite you to the meeting organised by the Committee of the Regions’ Interregional Group on Health and Well-being:
“Addressing the challenge of gender and health”
Thursday, 30 June 2022 (8:00 – 9:00 CET)
Hybrid – Microsoft Teams & limited on-site participation
The second 2022 meeting of the Interregional Group on Health and Well-being will focus on gender and health and the underlying inequality challenge. As research shows, men have shorter life expectancies and higher mortality rates. Women, while living longer, report worse health status than men and higher morbidity. This trend has been generally confirmed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This hybrid meeting will be a unique opportunity to foster a policy debate on the dimension of gender in health, addressing the state of play and exploring the challenge at stake from different angles.
- Dorota Sienkiewicz, Senior Policy Coordinator, EuroHealthNet
- Hendrik Van Poppel, Chair of the EU Policy Office at the European Association of Urology, and Co-chair of the European Cancer Organisation’s Inequalities Network
- Fulvia Signani and Flavia Franconi, Members of the Center of Studies on Gender Medicine, University of Ferrara, Italy
