Women's health: it's time for a new approach

Women, who remain the primary caregivers in most families, play a leading role in making healthcare decisions for themselves and their families. They are often the primary caregivers in their families, thus making 90% of health care decisions, and they are also the caregivers in their communities, since more than 70% of health workers are women. Unfortunately, they are also the ones who have poorer diagnosis processes, treatment, care, access and ultimately a reduced quality of life. There is a great inequality in healthcare.

Roche is committed to raising awareness of the inequalities that exist and to working with other stakeholders in healthcare. The goal is to help women get the healthcare they deserve and need. 

Through our global awareness campaign XProject, we aim to raise awareness and focus on inequalities in women's health with partners. 

It is time to research, recognise and target the biological differences between men and women. 

In this interview, Katharina Gasser, General Manager Roche Pharmaceuticals Switzerland, talks about women's health, how Roche is committed to women's health and how she personally feels about it.
