This collection explores the relationships between society, place, gender, and health, considering how these play out in different parts of the world. The chapters examine the layering of social, economic, and political relations that frame women's health. Both qualitative and quantitative methodologies are used, and policy implications are woven throughout. Particular attention is given to access to health and health care resources, and modes of service delivery. The places considered are both geographical and conceptual, including Europe, East Africa, Northern Thailand, northern New Jersey, southern Arizona, rural and urban India, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the West of Scotland, as well as the home, the workplace, the neighborhood, and the shopping mall.
