GINCO Project

Gender and health inequalities

in the CONSTANCES cohort: Social determinants
of healthy ageing in women and men

The GINCO project focuses on the social determinants of gender differences in health, particularly at older ages, at the intersection of the professional, social and family spheres. Using data from the CONSTANCES cohort, it is based on a life-course approach to health determinants. Its aim is to suggest levers for action, particularly through public policies, to improve the chances of ageing in good health and reduce inequalities.

Funded by the ANR, it is led by Emmanuelle Cambois, Director of Research at INED, and involves researchers from INED, Investissement d’Avenir-CONSTANCES, INSERM-Université Toulouse III, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medecine, Université de Lausanne and the Harvard School of Public Health.

Funding agency: Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR)
