Health refers to the overall well-being of residents in cities, encompassing physical, mental, and social dimensions. The health sector is intrinsically connected to gender equality as it involves addressing and rectifying disparities in healthcare access, outcomes, and experiences between genders. Gender inequalities can manifest in various ways, such as differences in healthcare utilization, unequal distribution of health resources, and the impact of social determinants on health outcomes. Addressing these disparities involves promoting equitable access to healthcare services, considering the unique health needs of different genders, and dismantling systemic barriers that contribute to gender-based health inequalities. Fostering gender equality in the health sector contributes to creating healthier as well as more aware and inclusive environments.
