Abstract
This research will delve into the reasoning behind the top gendered healthcare disparities. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), gendered based health inequalities disproportionately affect women and girls due to having a lower status and less control in making decisions regarding their bodies, relationships, families and communities which introduces them to violence, coercion, and harmful practices (Gender and Health, n.d.). The focus of this research will be on the ways in which targets on gender in healthcare are apparent in our society, including high risk factors of sexually transmitted infections, cervical cancer, depression, malnutrition, and others that are apparent in female individuals and other people. I will also incorporate gender theorists and their writings to address these issues. Gender inequality restricts women and girls to healthcare information and services such as mobility restrictions, limitation on decision-making autonomy, constraint to finance access, lowered literacy rates, and discrimination from healthcare providers (Gender and Health, n.d.). The purpose of this study is to address these and more gender-based disparities in healthcare and suggest options to lessen these inequalities.
