Ten years ago when I wrote the foreword to the first edition of this book, the
concept of women’s health was changing at a rapid pace. The focus was just
shifting from solely reproductive issues and biological factors, to an expanded
perception that women’s health encompasses biological, familial, cultural, economic,
emotional, psychological, and behavioral elements of each woman and her
sociopolitical environment, beyond just the reproductive organs and across her
Childhood obesity and asthma have increased dramatically in the last two decades (21, 2692) and are
exacerbated by factors in the modern built environment. In addition, recent reductions in childhood injury are
directly linked to the introduction of safety measures to housing construction and community and roadway planning.
This section summarizes the trends in occurrence of these diseases and their links to risk factors in the built
The factual knowledge of epilepsy is often

Counseling in epilepsy means support for people
with epilepsy and their families to help with
emotional and social consequences of epilepsy.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 13
percent of women aged eighteen years and older are in poor, or merely
fair, health. More than 12 percent of women face a limitation in their
usual activities due to chronic health conditions. In addition, 62 percent
of women aged twenty years and older are overweight, a key predictor
of future health problems. Moreover, the medical concerns
women face often differ from those of most concern to men.
More than an accidental injury, more than a serious illness, more than a
natural disaster, the trauma of crime victimization goes beyond physical and
psychological injury: It robs us of the very faith we have in the human world.
Although eclipsed in recent headlines by terrorism, the common everyday
violations of civilized behavior that our own citizens continue to perpetrate
on one another are no less wrenching.
According to Rubinow, the “one receptor-one action” model of hormone action has been overturned by the robust
evidence for action of steroid hormones through both nuclear and membrane receptors, and by the mounting evidence for
the role of co-regulators in modulation of hormone action. Rubinow argued that the same hormone may simultaneously
exert opposite effects on the same system (e.g., cell survival), and these effects can change with time. More research in
this area is needed to understand why women respond differently to the same hormonal stimuli.
Control measures for pneumonia (Table 125-2) are aimed at the remediation of risk factors in general patient care (e.g., minimizing aspirationprone supine positioning) and at meticulous aseptic care of respirator equipment (e.g., disinfecting or sterilizing all inline reusable components such as nebulizers, replacing tubing circuits at intervals of 48 h—rather than more frequently—to lessen the number of breaks in the system, and teaching aseptic technique for suctioning).

Providers should be aware of the relationship between infections that may be already present
and the risk of iatrogenic infection. For example, clients should be checked for endogenous or
sexually transmitted infections before insertions of the IUD to avoid bacteria being pushed into
the uterus. Alternatively, women selecting the IUD should be encouraged to choose a different
form of contraception if they consider themselves at risk of exposure to an STI.
In the early theoretical models, the level of stress of
caregivers was seen as a risk factor that linked elder
abuse with care of an elderly relative (36, 37).
While the popular image of abuse depicts a
dependent victim and an overstressed caregiver,
there is growing evidence that neither of these
factors properly accounts for cases of abuse.
Although researchers do not deny the component
of stress, they tend now to look at it in a wider
context in which the quality of the overall
relationship is a causal factor (30, 34, 38).

This report presents an overview of the state of women’s health in the European Union and addresses
both the differences between men and women and the differences among women living in different
Member States. It examines the main patterns of mortality and morbidity and the health risk factors at
different stages of women’s lives and reports on the current situation and recent trends in European
women’s health. It also provides information about the influence of demographic trends and socio-
economic factors on women’s health.
