In recent years women's issues have begun to move higher up the health services agenda. However, there have been few attempts to set out the rationale for this, or to document the good practice initiatives that have resulted. This unique book undertakes both these tasks.
The first part examines the theoretical, conceptual and empirical underpinning of current arguments for greater gender awareness in health planning; while the second explores a variety of schemes designed to put these new ideas into practice. The aim of these case studies is to show what can he done, but also to identify the many challenges and pitfalls involved.
