A 40-year-old member asked:

Why are there still gender health disparities?

Multifactorial: There are several reasons for gender disparities. Some factors represent basic biological differences between men and will not change. For example, increased estrogen production by women places them at higher risk than men for breast cancer. Some disparities are based on social factors. For example, men have a higher risk for lung cancer than women because more men smoke.

All too common: While we are the richest country in the world and spend the most on health care, we are far from the healthiest. At least part of this is due to poor access to health care based on low socioeconomic status. If you are like me and believe that health care is a right and not a privilege, then you have to look at countries that have solved this dilemma and re-build our healthcare delivery model.
