Friends of the Global Fight: Gender Inequalities Impact Treatment for Disease
In this blog post, the fourth in a series by Friends of the Global Fight addressing gender equality, Sydney Spencer, research intern at Friends of the Global Fight, discusses how gender inequality affects HIV, TB, and malaria treatment efforts, writing, “There is much that needs to be done for women both in regard to gender equality and equitable access to disease treatment. These two issues are strongly associated; one cannot be eradicated without addressing the other. Responsible disease management must incorporate gender-based needs to be successful” (8/30).
