A joint policy brief that examines how to reduce gender inequities using health systems. The key messages are:

- Data on mortality, morbidity and use of health services reveal some important differences in health experiences between women and men.
- Health systems can make important contributions to gender equality and gender equity by addressing gender in a variety of ways.
- Identifying gender inequalities and addressing gender equity are also central to good stewardship of health systems.
