Sharing my paper on Gender inequity in universal health coverage

Dear all

Happy to share my paper (co authored Lakshmi Lingam)  published in BMC Public Health on "Why is women's utilization of publicly funded health insurance scheme low? : a qualitative study in Tamil Nadu, India" published in BMC Public Health. 

The paper concludes:Health policies which aim to provide financial protection and improve access to healthcare services need to address gender as a crucial social determinant. A gender-blind health insurance can not only leave many pre-existing gender barriers unaddressed but also accentuate others. This paper stresses that universal health coverage policy and programs need to have an explicit focus on gender and other social determinants to promote access and equity.

Thanks
