ANTH4702Gender, Sexuality, and Health (A)3 ch (3S) (W)

Examine the gender dimension of health and disease and address the articulation of gender roles and ideologies with health status, the organization of health care, and health policies in a cross-cultural perspective. Utilize the Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) approach for examining how diverse groups of women, men, and non-binary people experience health policies, programs and initiatives. The “plus” in GBA+ shows that GBA goes beyond biological (sex) and socio-cultural (gender) differences, including how racism and other social injustices and their intersections with gender and sexuality compound the challenges faced by many marginalized groups.
