Genders and Sexuality are two important aspects of our society. These two aspects have both positive and negative impact on population health. In general gender stands for male and female but now the society has been divided into diverse sexual subpopulation. So while we discuss about gender the other subpopulation indulged in non-natural sexual behavior gets excluded. Moreover social acceptance of such non-natural sexual behavior is quite low. So they stay in socially isolated groups, which have prominent effect on their mental health and can be well observed in their behavior. Such a situation makes them get involved in narcotics addictions. Again in a male dominant society the females are also equally vulnerable to health problems than the male gender.
