Join Physiopedia and the rest of the ReLAB-HS team to explore how gender affects rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation is all about ensuring equal access to services and the right to maintain good health throughout your life. But did you know that rehabilitation services are still not equally accessed between men and women? For women and girls, the unmet need of rehabilitation remains great.
Did you know that globally, women are less likely to access rehabilitation services, and when they do, are more likely to experience poorer outcomes?
If you would like to know more about how gender influences rehabilitation, take a look at this newly published resources by ReLAB-HS, called the Rehabilitation through a gender lens Factsheet. Estimated reading time is 10 minutes, with an emphasis on good practices for making rehabilitation more accessible as well as recommendations for health decision-makers.
To interact further on this topic, join us for a Webinar organised by the ReLAB-HS Consortium, which will be hosted in English and close captioning and international sign language interpretation will be provided. The webinar takes place January the 19th at 2:00pm – 3:15pm GMT.
