This position paper examines the gender dimensions of non-communicable diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory conditions, and musculo-skeletal condition, to raise awareness, and to inform prevention and treatment guidelines. Building on the inequities for women documented in the AWHN Position Paper on Women’s Health and Wellbeing,this paper highlights the specific areas where gender blindness is occurring and the areas where change is needed.
