Gender, Work and Health

Around the world, women are at a disadvantage compared to men in the various
spheres of society and, as a result, their issues have traditionally lacked
visibility. Women's work is no exception. Women's working conditions are less
often researched, and their associated health problems less often diagnosed and
compensated for than men's.

This information booklet provides an overview of the differences and
inequalities in work and health between women and men, and highlights issues of
particular importance to women. Advice for action is provided at different
levels: government, employers, workers and researchers.
