The literature has highlighted the organization and provision of health-oriented care in societies over time, along with the implications for gender equality. In turn, care throughout history (both paid and unpaid) has been fundamental to both human wellbeing and economic and social development. In other words, what is of particular interest to the care economy is the relationship between the way societies have organized their members’ healthcare and the management of the functioning of the health economic system. Therefore, gender and culture are foundations of individual and social identity, which condition the various forms of interaction in the care administration relationship between the professional and the patient/family. In recent years, emphasis has been placed on the study of the so-called care economy from the perspective of gender, culture, and healthcare management.
The objective that we propose in this Special Edition is to bring together the latest research framed in the culture of care, its evolution in societies, care economics, and care management, highlighting the gender perspective. Likewise, we propose to do this through the adoption of transdisciplinary approaches that prioritize in these studies relational analysis in the context of health scenarios, ideologies, and people.
Therefore, studies are justified in relation to health and illness, the culture of care, and the profile (sex/gender) of the care provider. This Special Issue seeks studies with different quantitative and qualitative methodologies, as well as studies of mixed methods. Reviews following quality criteria will also be considered. We particularly welcome research projects that adopt a multisectoral and transdisciplinary approach.
