Anna Oksuzyan, Domantas Jasilionis, Vladimir M. Shkolnikov, Mine Kühn, Carlos Diaz-Venegas, James W. Vaupel, Christian Dudel, Tobias Vogt, Peng Li, Maria A. Shkolnikova; in Collaboration with Prashant K. Singh (TERI University, New Delhi, India), Kaare Christensen (Max-Planck Odense Center on the Biodemography of Aging / University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark), Aïda Solé-Auró (Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, Spain)

The project investigates sex differences in health and mortality across high-, middle-, and low-income countries and across various subpopulations within a country. This research is important for advancing our understanding of the mechanisms that underlie not only sex differences in health and survival, but also health inequalities in general.Detailed description
