In all European countries, social inequalities in health remain high. Numerous research studies have identified various social factors that affect health. However, gender, as a social power relation between women and men, is rarely considered as a key determinant of health inequalities. The purpose of GENDHI is to understand how gender intersects with other social relations of class and “race” to construct social inequalities in health, throughout the life course.


The project is led by four scientific leaders. The team is composed of about fifteen researchers, including doctoral and post-doctoral students.
The Gendhi community is enlarged by practitioners and associated researchers.
