Gender, Health & Sustainable Development (University of Groningen)

07/05/2018

Looking forward to the International Day of Action for Women's Health this SDG workshop celebrates past successes and reflects on the current challenges to improve women’s health. Health (Goal 3) and gender equality (Goal 5) are cornerstones of the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Prevailing gender norms and discrimination influence our ability to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health. However, a range of health determinants, conditions, and treatments are understudied in women, non-binary, and transgender communities. Some new health technologies are neither developed nor available for conditions uniquely faced by these groups. Stigma, lack of awareness, and/or high prices of health innovations perpetuate these existing health inequalities.

International human rights law has the potential to transform legal rules, social norms, and political commitments for a more inclusive and gendersensitive environment for the full realisation of the Agenda 2030. International human rights law incites a deeper analysis of gender-based inequalities and offers legal remedies and accountability through the human rights systems.

Programme
The workshop will feature Prof. Wendy Harcourt (confirmed), Professor of Gender, Diversity and Sustainable Development at the Erasmus University. Her keynote will be followed by a panel session with presenters selected from the call for papers. Selected artwork will be exhibited throughout the event. A full programme will be published closer to the event.

Registration
Participation is free of charge. Open to all disciplines and students. Advance registration is appreciated although not required - please send an email to katrina.perehudoff@gmail.com
