[Registration Closed] (Webinar) The 114th HGPI Seminar – Socioeconomic Factors and Women’s Health (March 6, 2023)
date : 2/17/2023
Tags: HGPI Seminar, Women's Health
International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8. To mark the occasion, Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) is making women’s health the theme of our 114th HGPI Seminar.
Since its launch in FY2016, the HGPI Women’s Health Project has worked continuously to generate policy recommendations on women’s health that aim to achieve better well-being for every woman through activities that have included conducting surveys and operating Youth Terrace, our platform for reproductive health.
Surveys conducted in the past by HGPI as well as existing studies have suggested that socioeconomic factors like annual income, employment status, and location of residence are associated with factors that lead to poorer health for women as well as lower birth rates. Despite our need for policies that take the socioeconomic factors affecting each individual into account, efforts to create such policies are hindered by the fact that we do not possess the full understanding of the details for each factor we need to grasp current circumstances. With this backdrop, the HGPI Women’s Health Project conducted a survey in FY2022 that emphasized socioeconomic factors and economic impact as key items in the context of women’s health as one effort to help make society a place where every woman can attain good health.
The recommendations will be published soon.
For the upcoming HGPI Seminar, we will host Professor Miho Iida, an OB-GYN and Assistant Professor at the Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the Keio University School of Medicine. Professor Iida also participated in conducting the aforementioned research survey as an advisor. Based on the findings of the survey, Professor Iida will talk about the necessary measures for achieving better women’s health and enhancing their activities.
*Please note that this seminar is available in Japanese only. An English report of this event will be published in due course.
