What does the Course aim to achieve?
Women have higher rates of mental illness, chronic illness and autoimmune illness than men. Despite 52% of the global population being women we spend only 1% of medical research and funding on female-specific conditions. This plays out in higher rates of absence for women and has huge societal impact as women are of then the primary carers for others. Women’s health is rapidly rising up the agenda with the UK government recently publishing its first ‘Women’s Health’ strategy and appointing it’s first Women’s Health Ambassador.
