Gender Integrated modules for MBBS students.
Despite an established role of social determinants in health care, neither medical education nor public health services in India have taken cognizance of it. Non recognition of these determinants have led to several biases in dispensing of treatment and care to patients. Thus, medical education provides an important opportunity to transform the healthcare provision. CEHAT (Centre for Enquiry into Health and Allied Theme) with the support of United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in collaboration with Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) and Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) undertook a project on integrating gender in medical education in MBBS curriculum in Maharashtra. This video describes the experiences of medical colleges in implementing this project.
