1. BACKGROUND

1.1 EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF WOMEN’S HEALTH

Founded in **Apply on the website**, the European Institute of
Women’s Health (EIWH) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that
uses an evidence-based  approach to advocate for an equitable, sex
and gender sensitive approach in health policy, research, promotion,
treatment, and care. The Institute promotes biomedical and
socio-economic research that addresses sex and gender-based
differences to ensure access to quality treatment and care for women
and their families across their lifespan. The EIWH strives to reduce
inequities by drawing policy maker’s attention to the obstacles that
women in minority, migrant, refugee and socio-economic disadvantaged
groups face. The Institute’s activities work to empower individuals
to play an active part in their own health management. The UN
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) should be integrated into
European health and well-being programming, policy, and practice.
Concerted efforts should be devoted to promoting and achieving SDG 3
(good health and well-being) 5 (gender equality) and **Apply on the
website** (reducing inequalities). Europe can do more to follow suit
and must make women’s health equality a central focus.

1.2 STUDY RATIONALE

Equality between men and women has been a priority of the European
Union since the treaty of Rome over **Apply on the website** years
ago. **Apply on the website** marked twenty-five years since the
Beijing Declaration and five years of the UN’s Social Development
Goals (SDGs) yet large sex and gender inequities continue to persist
and are now in danger of being increased because of the coronavirus
pandemic. Many governments over the years have committed to the
eradication of gender inequalities, however progress has been slow,
discrimination against women persists and the target of equality for
all genders has never been attained. The incremental nature of the
policy making processes and budgetary cycles are out of sync with the
rapid changes of societal and particularly women’s needs, especially
during this current time of  economic crisis and  the impact of
COVID-**Apply on the website** has highlighted. Women are not only
expected to play a ubiquitous role in their families, communities and
societies, they do this with significantly fewer financial and other
resources, particularly as they age. By **Apply on the website**, the
GDP per capita in the EU would increase by **Apply on the website**%
or €2- 3 trillion if gender equality is improved. Gender policies
have been shown to have a stronger impact on GDP growth than labour
market and education policies. The EU Gender Equality Index has always
and continues to show that women remain second-class citizens and that
occupational segregation in the labour market results in women’s
work being undervalued and underpaid. This has changed very little
over so far in this century.
