The Burden of Breadwinning: Transformative Masculinities in the Context of HIV, Violence against Women and Gender Inequality

Eds.: Brot für die Welt, (2016)

Since the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995, gender mainstreaming has become a widespread strategy for changing unequal social and institutional structures which discriminate against women and girls, with the goal of achieving gender equality. Much has changed for women since 1995: they have become more visible as actors in society, economy and politics. Public awareness regarding their discrimination has increased.

Krank und ohne Papiere: Fallsammlung

Bundesarbeitsgruppe Gesundheit/Illegalität, (2018)

Immer wieder hören wir – in der inzwischen jahrzehntelangen Lobbyarbeit der BAG – aus der Politik die Bitte, das Problem der medizinischen Unterversorgung von Menschen ohne Papiere zu „bebildern“: Wer sind diese Menschen? Wo liegen die Probleme in der gesundheitlichen Versorgung? Vor welchen praktischen Problemen, d.h. Sachzwängen, bürokratischen und rechtlichen Hürden stehen die Helfenden in den Anlaufstellen, die dort Hilfe leisten, wo der Zugang zum Gesundheitssystem versperrt ist? Die hier geschilderten Fälle aus der medizinischen Praxis sollen das humanitäre Problem besser nachvollziehbar machen.
