Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but also important for achieving full human potential, social and economic progression and sustainable development. Gender inequality has become a global phenomenon that has been impacting every sphere of life, particularly the gender health gap. A better understanding of gender inequality through women’s health and well-being is necessary to close the gap as women make up half of the global population. For this Special Issue, we seek thoughtful and well-written manuscripts that address women’s health and inequalities from social, ecological, economic and environmental perspectives and emphasise their local and global implications. Research areas/topics are women’s health, reproductive and sexual health, gender violence, health screening, health promotion and prevention. We will consider methodologies including systematic reviews, meta-analyses, retrospective and prospective assessments of quality of life, as well as articles on both quantitative and qualitative models from diverse fields including epidemiology, public health, medicine, sociology, anthropology, nursing, environmental studies, statistics and psychology.
