Extracts from our latest report

          Women’s Health in Europe:

                Midlife and Older Women’s Health”


The impact of gender in the use of services is not limited to individuals’ health seeking behaviour; gender biases also influence the provision of services. Women and men use healthcare in different ways.

Women are more likely than men to present ‘invisible’ illnesses and disabilities which are often not adequately recognised by the healthcare system. Examples include depression, eating disorders, disabilities related to home accidents and sexual violence, as well as diseases and disabilities related to old age.”

Since vaccination programmes to protect against HPV (the main cause of cervical cancer) target younger age groups, national cervical cancer screening programmes are the best strategy to tackle incidence and mortality from this largely preventable disease among midlife and older women.”

Looking forward to your participation!
