Onda promotes gender-related health carrying out research projects, communication campaigns, training events and advocacy activities, while collaborating with Institutions, Hospitals, Scientific Societies, patients’ associations and companies.
Because of their own nature, women have specific health needs. For example in Italy women live longer and fall ill more often than men, as many pathologies are related to the process of ageing. Additionally, women use more the National Health System and consume more medications compared to men.
Plus women usually take on the delicate and fundamental role of caregiver, namely the person who provides assistance in the family and in social settings.
Therefore our goal is to promote prevention and improve the quality of care, while increasing the health services’ accessibility.
