Gender is regarded as a key factor which impacts and influences the health status of an individual. Significant inequalities of gender results in certain consequences of health. It has been observed that the gender inequalities encountered by women at workplace and differences in pay have lead to increase ratio of women suffering from mental health problems (Dresch, et al., 2018). Besides the mental health problems there are several different illnesses encountered by individuals based on gender. Often the influence of biological factors is involved in generating an influence on health based on gender. In this assessment the influence of gender on diabetes and coronary heart disease would be discussed and the theories of gender would also be highlighted. A reflection is also made to reflect the learning and knowledge gained throughout the coursework.
Gender and Health Care
In most parts of the Europe women live five years longer than men, but their favorable and healthy future position is less than nine months. Gender and gender have a significant impact on general health and biomedical research, prevention and health care. Natural and social influences are of fundamental importance for health (Schenck-Gustafsson and Fridner, 2017). Women struggle with a higher percentage of diseases in the form of malignant breast growth, osteoporosis and self-injurious diseases. Various diseases unexpectedly affect “men and women, including diabetes, discouragement, and cardiovascular disease”. Women do not have equivalent conditions and, unlike treatment, respond in comparison to men. Numerous components outside of the “health sector” such as “financial status, education, culture and ethnicity influence behavior and access to resources” also impact the development of the disease. For example, women in Europe have poorly paid jobs, are considered “less secure” as compared to masculine population. They are expected to earn “16% less than men and 40% less than pensions”
