Symposium on Public Health - The gender equation: Implications for health?

Registration now open!


‘Every human cell has a sex and every person is gendered’ (Eleanor Fish). There is a growing awareness of the implication of gender on several areas of our everyday lives. Current research suggests that the prevention, and management of common ailments requires a consideration of the individuals’ sex.

We aim with this symposium to highlight the implications of gender on various aspects of human health including occupational and reproductive health as well as infectious disease and vaccination. Our speakers bring a wealth of experience from research in Africa, South America, North America and Europe. We would also like to stimulate discussion on what the research priorities are in this emerging field.

In addition, we will showcase the research of the 2016 batch of CIHLMU PhD students with a poster session.

Symposium will be held March 17, 2018 in Munich, Germany.

Venue: Anatomical Institute
Pettenkoferstrasse 11, Lecture hall A202
