Interactive Infographic: Men vs women in emerging markets

While a wide-range range of societal and economic factors influence health outcomes, one of the most significant factors is gender. In addition to overall morbidity and mortality, certain health issues are more commonly associated with one gender. But while biology plays a role, it is predominantly the way in which society structures and shapes men’s and women’s lives that result in health inequalities. Gender norms, roles and expectations vary between cultures, particularly in emerging markets, and affect the way in which health care is accessed.

Our latest interactive infographic compares the lives of men vs women in the BRIC emerging markets, and explores how societal factors impact their respective health outcomes.
