Gender has a major influence on which behaviors, characteristics and attitudes are assigned to a person by others. At the same time, gender influences a person's living conditions and health opportunities and is therefore a central subject of health science research. In addition, the concept of intersectionality is increasingly finding its way into research on health inequalities. Intersectionality refers to the entanglement of different social categories and the associated consequences for equal opportunities and inequality.
At the IPP, the topic of gender and intersectionality has long been a focus of research and teaching: to mark the tenth anniversary of the Department of Social Epidemiology at the IPP, we have dedicated this year's issue of IPP-Info to the main topic of "Gender and intersectionality in health science research".
In the main articles of IPP-Info 20, the topic is examined from a variety of perspectives. As usual, further information on IPP research, teaching and transfer can be found in the following sections.
