Sex and gender matter in interventions and research for rehabilitation within health systems because females, males, and intersex people have different biologies—and women, men, and gender minorities have different gendered social experiences—that affect their health behaviors, opportunities, and outcomes.

It is important that rehabilitation care, like other forms of service delivery, is contextualized within the broader context of gendered health systems.
