From the Publisher

'...a welcome contribution to the body of evidence about the socio-technical co-construction of technology, health and gender... this volume is of interest to multiple audiences. It is equally appropriate to nursing, health sciences, information studies, and labour studies.' - International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology

'...the book clearly fulfils its aim to bring together analysis of gender, ICTs and health care, addressing a gap in existing literature.' - Sociology of Health and Illness
