Summary This book focuses on gender justice and the health care system. It will be divided into two parts. In Part One, a framework of gender justice will be developed. What is gender justice? What would a gender just public policy look like? What criteria should such policies meet? In Part Two, the framework will be applied to the area of health care policy, specifically medical research and health care financing and delivery. An analysis of past policies will be made, as well as an analysis of the recently enacted and proposed changes. First published in 1998. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
