Luis Martinez-Juarez: Dive deep into the profound gender inequalities permeating oncology and cancer care

Luis Martinez-Juarez, Affiliate at The Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health, shared a post on LinkedIn:

“Join us for an enlightening journey with Dr. Ophira Ginsburg, Co-Chair of The Lancet Commission on Women, Power, and Cancer, in our latest interview. Dive deep into the profound gender inequalities permeating oncology and cancer care. This video explores the pioneering work of the Lancet Commission, which aims to redefine global approaches to cancer research and treatment through a gender lens.

In this discussion, we delve into key themes such as the distinction between sex and gender in cancer research, the critical importance of disaggregated data to uncover and address care disparities, and the deep-seated structural power imbalances that exacerbate these inequalities. Dr. Ginsburg unravels the necessity of adopting gender-inclusive health policies to combat the systemic toxicity that disproportionately affects women facing cancer.

Furthermore, we address the Commission’s strategic recommendations and urgent actions needed to eradicate gender gaps in oncology. This dialogue not only sheds light on the complexities of gender disparities in cancer care but also seeks to inspire the global community towards transformative measures that promote equity and inclusion in cancer care.

Embark on this transformative exploration with us, where understanding gender disparities in cancer is just the beginning of a path toward justice, equity, and compassionate care for all.”
