GENDER EQUALITY; WHAT IS IT?
Gender equity: defined as “fairness in the treatment of women and men, means a fair distribution of benefits, power, resources and responsibilities between women and men. The concept recognizes that there are differences between men and women in terms of health needs, access and control of resources, and that these differences must be addressed in order to correct imbalances between men and women. Gender inequality in the health field refers to unjust, unnecessary and preventable inequalities that exist between women and men in the state of health and participation in health work. Gender equity strategies are used to finally achieve equality. Equity is the means, equality is the result. Empowerment refers to the taking of control by women and men over their lives, that is: the ability to distinguish options, make decisions and put them into practice. It is a process, but it is also a result; It is collective and at the same time individual.
