Gender Differentials in the Seeking of Eye Care

Rajshri Jayaraman, Debraj Ray, Shing-Yi Wang


A central feature of many developing countries is the presence of significant gender differentials in health outcomes. In this working paper, authors present findings from a study on one potential factor which can account for this; namely, that females seek treatment later than males, and contrast this pathway with the hypothesis that females receive differential care at the medical facility.
