  • Globalization exerts positive and negative impacts on health and has been linked to reduced government expenditures on health, education, and social programs, and restructured workplace and home life. Globalization is altering gender roles and relationships and influencing health determinants. Asymmetric rights and responsibilities, labor market segregation, consumption patterns, and discrimination are influenced differently by globalization and affect men and women’s health in distinct ways.

  • Women's risk for many diseases increases at menopause, which occurs at a median age of 51.4 years. In the industrialized world, women spend one-third of their lives in the postmenopausal period.

Rates of cardiovascular disease increase and bone density begins to decrease rapidly after menopause.

More than 12 percent of women face a limitation in their usual activities due to chronic health conditions. In addition, 62 percent of women aged twenty years and older are overweight, a key predictor of future health problems. Moreover, the medical concerns women face often differ from those of most concern to men.

  • The purpose of this book is to consider the woman and her health needs in her position in her life cycle, her family, and society. Women have historically been ‘‘the other’’ in medical care. Sigmund Freud and Erik Erikson considered women’s development to be deviant from the normal, which was men’s. Although the Greeks Hippocrates and Soranus wrote about women’s medical needs, women’s health concerns have either been considered abnormal, or, traditionally, been condensed to their gynecological functions and disorders, perhaps because these were their only valued functions....

  • We are living through a period of striking, gender-related social change in the West as traditional distinctions between the experiences of women and men are breaking down and being reconfigured in new, more complex ways. This has significant, but as yet largely unexplored, implications for health and illness. The long-established life expectancy gap between men and women appears to be closing in many affluent societies as men begin to ‘catch up’ with women.

  • Women’s health concerns have been considered, examined, and researched differently by the medical establishment than those of men. Their concerns and diseases have often been considered unusual and abnormal when compared to those of men. Yet, the differences between women and men, discovered and noted in medicine and research, may be more a creation of society and its expectations than that of nature.1 Women are more similar to men than they are different.

  • The concept of health-promoting schools includes the associated community and the environment beyond the school gates. Many other people therefore have a legitimate interest in this work, such as non-teaching staff, those providing confi- dential counselling, school architects, school food providers, police officers and transport specialists. However, this chapter focuses on the main stakeholders and explores the vital understanding between education and health that has to be in place for health promotion in schools to be sustainable....

  • A book such as this would not have been written twenty years ago.An awareness of men as gendered is fairly new in health and social welfare. It took some years after the early development of social scientific interest in the social construction of masculinity for academics and practitioners to show an interest in practical engagement with men as gendered – that is, in engaging with men in such a way as to recognise how their identities and conduct are shaped by the way they are raised as men.

  • Women leak, inevitably and often bountifully. Menstrual blood, birth fluids, breast milk and sometimes tears lead us to be seen as leakier than men at a physical level. Women are often seen to work through a network of relationships, a web, rather than the hierarchy of male decision-making (Gilligan 1982). Within such a web of relationships, emotions, knowledge and other personal attributes flow, often freely, sometimes unconsciously. Dirt is defined by Mary Douglas as ‘matter out of place’ (Douglas 1966).

  • Young men aged 15–24 die at rates far higher than their female counterparts, and at rates higher than men of any other age group. Worldwide, the leading causes of death for young men aged 15–24 are traffic accidents and homicide—both directly related to how boys and men are socialized. In much of Latin America, the Caribbean and parts of sub-Saharan Africa, the leading cause of early death far and away is homicide.

  • Being a man should not seriously damage your health, conclude White and Banks (2004) in their chapter in a men’s health text. The maxim is used at the beginning of this text to remind the practice nurse of the fact that being a man in some instances can and does seriously damage their health. Men are much less likely to visit their general practice than women. Those men who are aged under 45 years visit their general practice only half as often as women; it is only when they become older that the gap narrows signifi cantly....

  • Since the late 1990s, the volume of research on gender issues in mental health has grown significantly. One important point that the gender literature has demonstrated, in addition to clarifying how women’s health differs from that of men’s, is how little we actually know about men’s mental health concerns. Although the great body of research in mental health has historically been based on men, until recently the research has largely failed to address how male gender integrally influences the clinical presentation and treatment of various disorders.

  • It is remarkable to see the rapid increase in interest in the health of men since the mid-1980s. We have moved from a position where there was almost complete silence on the subject, an absence that was reflected not only in policy and clinical practice but also within the academic community, to this now being recognized as an area of major importance.
