The Psychology of Gender and Health: Conceptual and Applied Global Concernsexamines the psychological aspects of the intersection between gender and health and the ways in which they relate to the health of individuals and populations. It demonstrates how gender should be strategically considered in the most routine research tasks from establishing priorities, constructing theory, designing methodologies, in data interpretation, and how to practically apply this information in clinical contexts.
