Men, Women & Health - New approaches to research and theory for improving health and health care
Men’s and women’s health have tended to be treated in rather stereotypical ways – as if all men are careless about their health, simply by virtue of their masculinity; and women’s health, when it comes down to it, is all about their gynaecology.

2.2 2.2 Diversity between states

To attempt more precise definitions would run the risk of arbitrarily excluding many of the phenomena we need to address. In fact the intentionally loose, multifaceted nature of these definitions reflects the reality of regional diversity, which has many dimensions. The differences start with the states which in practical political terms largely define regions, for they are themselves very different in area and population size, in economic strength, in cultural homogeneity or heterogeneity, a
