Abstract

this paper analyzes the topic of Gender Medicine from a scientific and legal perspective, based on current medical literature and its implementation in the Italian and European legal systems. Gender medicine is the only credible response to sex- and gender-based inequalities affecting the right to health, as it provides tools to address persisting inequalities in prevention and treatment, thus pursuing health for all: women and men. the importance of this path was underlined also by the Summit and the Rome Declaration of 21 May 2021, acknowledging that the topic of sex and gender can no longer be overlooked in focusing a correct and equal healthcare approach.
