Item description for Gender in Prevention and Health Promotion: Policy Reserach Practice by Ulla Walter & Brigitte Neumann...
Over the past years, governments have committed themselves to including gender issues in policy-making, with a view to advancing women's equality. At the same time, there is increasing recognition that the systematic consideration of gender is essential to high quality health and social programs. This book will bridge the gaps between the players in research, politics and policy. It will present models of best practice from different countries linking different fields. The main questions are: How can gender and diversity analysis be made necessary and practical in prevention and health promotion? What strategies are effective in fostering gender mainstreaming and preventing gender bias? And how can they be implemented in politics, research, education and practice? The challenge of this book is to combine the very different ways of generating and using "knowledge" from this discipline with the focus on the shared goal of enhancing prevention and health promotion under the gender perspective.
