About the Course


 The incidence of inequality in accessing health care services between men and women is a well- known phenomenon around the world. In many countries, women have no or limited access to health care.

 When we speak of women’s health, we need to use a holistic approach. We know that women are not a homogenous group: they represent different ethnicities, cultures, and socio-economic groups, yet we can find common characteristics among them: exposure to poverty, violence, and chronic illness, sometimes little or no health insurance; they are more likely to die from heart disease, cancer, alcohol abuse, suicide, cigarette smoking, and obesity.

 It is important that health care professionals and all levels of government be aware of these disparities and find ways of reducing these health inequalities in women, specially those living in remote areas. In the next decades, the international community is set to focus on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as goal number 3

 – “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”. These goals promote access for all for safe, effective, quality and affordable medicines and vaccines. Both of these major global agendas deal with health, including its economic and social aspects. In building and strengthening health services and systems for women, these issues need to be taken into account with regard to Primary Health Care (PHC). This course will focus on challenges in Health Care services, systems, and policies that affecting women.

 During the course, we will tackle issues such as scarcity of medical facilities, lack of primary health care, societal and cultural norms, and inadequate policies and funding that often make women reluctant to seek services. Furthermore, we will examine the human resources needed in different settings to provide the care and support needed by women.

 The state of Israel has succeeded in meeting challenges in the field of healthcare, due to a combination of innovation, technology, and national commitment, including policies and funding. These topics will be explored through different methods, such as lectures, professional visits and sharing of case studies.
