The author then explores the links between gender and the health-related MGDs as well as the implications of these for research priorities. The last section outlines some of the gender issues related to the 'MDG plus' approach adopted at Forum 8, the annual meeting of the Global Forum for Health Research held in Mexico City in November 2004. The document draws throughout on presentations from Forum 8 and from Forums 6 and 7 where many of these questions were also debated.

Title: Gender and Health Sector Reform
Themes: Evidence on neglected research priorities
Authors: Doyal, Lesley
Keywords: biological, gender, health, health care, men, reform, reproductive, sector, services, sexual, social, women
Year: 2004 Pages: 26
Abstract:
This resource briefing offers an overview of the existing evidence base relating to gender and health sector reform. It begins by examining the different components of these reform processes and why they might have different implications for women and for men. This will reflect both the different biological needs of the two sexes and also the influence of social or gender differences between women and men on health-care needs and on access to services and their quality. While available evidence on different aspects of health care will be mentioned, the review will pay particular attention to sexual and reproductive health services.
