Summary
"Using a political economy of health, this book examines the linkages between gender, globalization, and health in a Latin American context. Gideon shows that the development of health systems in Latin America was closely linked to men's participation in formal labor. This established an inherent male bias that continues to shape health services today. While economic liberalization has created new jobs that have been taken up mainly by women, these jobs fail to offer the same health entitlements. Gideon explores the resultant tensions and gender inequalities, which have been further exacerbated in the context of health care commercialization"--
