'''Gender issues in health''' is both a well-established domain in healthcare and an emerging one due to a rise in demand for resources that address diversity and transitional gender identities. The topic examines a range of health issues that have an impact on biological female and male (and trans people) differently. All kinds of questions are asked today about how genders differ in the healthcare arena and how individuals can be cared for specifically and adequately across the lifespan as they move through health systems. Questions about the quality of patient care (and information) that genders receive, including the elderly and those in ethnic populations, have generated a great interest in change, but new mandates by various governments have prompted calls for a complete rethinking of issues. Among several areas in health, there is growing awareness of the need to initiate better research and studies that identify gender issues in delivery, and to recognize and assess disease symptoms in this context.

Gender issues in health is both a well-established domain in healthcare and an emerging one due to a rise in demand for resources that address diversity and transitional gender identities. The topic examines a range of health issues and attitudes that affect the needs of people and genders differently. All kinds of questions are asked today about how genders differ in receiving healthcare and how individuals can be cared for specifically and adequately across the lifespan. Questions about the quality of patient care (and information) that genders receive, including the elderly and those in ethnic populations, have generated a great interest in change, but new mandates by various governments have prompted calls for a complete rethinking of issues. Among several areas in health, there is growing awareness of the need to initiate better research and studies that identify gender issues in delivery, and to recognize and assess disease symptoms in this context. This extends to areas such as the improvement of diagnosis and prognosis based on gender, and gender issues as they affect health generally.
