In the past few decades, the European workforce has seen a substantial rise in the
number of employed women. There is an increasing trend in women entering most
occupations while still carrying the responsibilities of domestic labor. Professional
and domestic demands can be overwhelming and diff cult to balance, thus placing
women in a very sensitive yet powerful position.
These guidelines have been developed to help ensure that, in all research sponsored by the
Aboriginal Women’s Health Research Program, appropriate respect is given to the cultures,
languages, knowledge and values of Aboriginal peoples’ legitimate knowledge.
These guidelines represent the standard of best practice adopted by the Saskatoon Aboriginal
Women’s Health Research Advisory Committee.
This book highlights the needs and healthcare concerns of women in their mid
life.Women in middle age are often overlooked by medical practitioners. From
the end of childbearing to old age, approximately ages 40–65 years, their health
needs are complex and changing. This is a time of challenge and opportunity,
when the physician and woman working collaboratively can change her health
and future. Mid-life healthcare is far more than hormones.
The relationship between physical activity and breast cancer is less clear, but several
studies in American women suggest that risk may be lowered in those who are habitually
active. An extensive review of this subject is now available including international studies
(Kramer & Wells, 1996). Only studies utilizing American subjects are reviewed here. In 1985,
Frisch et al. assessed prevalence of breast cancer in 5,398 former collegiate women athletes
and nonathletes from 10 colleges and universities from classes spanning 56 years.
Iam extremely pleased to introduce Women of the World: Laws
and Policies Affecting Their Reproductive Lives,East Central Europe.
This book is a unique review of laws and policies relating to
reproductive health and rights in East Central Europe. The
dramatic political and economic transitions in this region have
resulted in numerous laws and policies that shape women’s
health and reproductive lives.
I have spent most of my professional career since the 1980s working on
reproductive and sexual health programs, but I first developed a passion
for these issues while working on a project in Chile from 1972 to 1973 at
the time of Salvador Allende’s government. A multinational group of women
friends got together to adapt Our Bodies Ourselves1 for a Chilean audience,
which was to appear in the government’s women’s magazine, Paloma.
An estimated 67% to 93% of human communication (according to university researchers) is nonverbal, and your body language reveals your internal emotional state. Whether someone's parents just died, or whether they just got promoted to CEO... you can tell by observing their body language. So, as a man who tries to pick up and seduce women, you should be mindful of what you're communicating non-verbally. Body language consists of the following: - Your movements.
The World Health Organization and the United Nations Population Fund in collaboration with the
Key Centre for Women’s Health in Society, in the School of Population Health at the University of
Melbourne, Australia are pleased to present this joint publication of available evidence on the intricate
relationship between women’s mental and reproductive health. The review comprises the most recent
information on the ways in which mental health concerns intersect with women’s reproductive health.
The country case studies make clear that international partners share
some of the blame, particularly because they too often fail to coordinate
programs to help promote more integrated, comprehensive health care
for women. However, it is equally clear that many of the obstacles are
wholly local in nature: National governments and policymakers are
often unable or unwilling to initiate or sustain health care programs and
reforms that would improve women’s access to services and, by extension,
reduce rates of vertical transmission.
The principles and recommendations of the Kyiv Declaration on Women’s Health in Prison are
important steps towards improving health systems and addressing the health needs of women
involved in the criminal justice system. I hope that this report, which outlines the evidence and
the expert opinions considered at the special conference held in Kyiv in November 2008, will
convince all Member States to adopt and implement the Kyiv Declaration in fulfilment of their
commitment to human rights and health promotion for all. ...
Special emphasis in this conversation will be placed on the role international mechanisms can play as relevant drivers of
behaviour change, notably those focusing on relevant sectors and able to produce information that is responsive to the
needs of national stakeholders to promote gender equality. Speakers will show how evidence on gender equality can be
used to hold actors to account at the international level and what challenges remain.
I’ve spent the last 28 years studying, practicing,
teaching, and evolving as a naturopathic
physician. Two themes have been consistent:
natural medicine and the health care of women.
Alternative medicine has come to be the
popular term used to distinguish natural, noninvasive
therapies from conventional medicine.
In support of the government's efforts and policies, the World Bank has prepared this
Country Gender Assessment to identify critical areas in which gender-responsive actions
are likely to enhance growth, poverty reduction and human well-being. The extent of
gender discrimination in Afghanistan is pervasive, and the present report focuses on a few
key sectors deemed particularly important for both short and long-term reconstruction.
Gender gaps in Afghanistan are widespread in health, in education, in economic
opportunities and in power and political voice.
Participants from DCF stakeholder groups (provider countries / recipient countries / civil society and parliamentarians /
UN system) are expected to brainstorm within their respective groups on how to advance gender equality in light of new
challenges faced by development cooperation, including the transition to sustainable development and the coordination
among different actors, approaches and flows to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women.
The International School of Gynecological and Reproductive Endocrinology
is the educational branch of ISGE entitled for the organization of educational
courses on behalf of the Society itself.
The mission of The International School of Gynecological and Reproductive
Endocrinology is to promote clinical education world-wide by aiding the
training of physicians from all nations in Gynecological Endocrinology and
As citizens, Afghan women face constitutional equality but legal inequality. Furthermore, there
are great discrepancies between customary law, civil law and Islamic Law - as well as the informal
justice system, which tends to grant women even less rights. Years of conflict and violence have
further eroded the protection of women's (limited) rights, and a culture of impunity reigns as
far as violence is concerned, including violence against women inside and outside the household.
Research indicates that in most facilities the identification of HIV
infection among women in prevention of vertical transmission programs
is used as an entry point to recommend HIV testing and counselling to
other family members. However, all respondents noted that the number
of sexual partners who make use of these services is still extremely low.
Health is a fundamental human right, especially for individuals held in the custody of the state.
Although women should be entitled to the same rights as men, prison systems were primarily
designed for men, and many prisons do not have adequate facilities to protect women’s rights or
to promote their health. Compounding the difficulty of addressing this problem is the lack of data
and research about women’s health status while in prison. Health systems must include
penitentiary health policies that integrate women’s health needs in all phases of planning and
Indian culture promotes universal marriage. Of importance to ARH is the traditional young marriage age
of girls—referred to as early marriage. The national average age at marriage for women in India is 16.4
years, although there are vast regional variations. Most northern and north-eastern states, as well as
Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the south and Goa in the west, have a higher age at marriage, ranging from
ages 18–22. The majority of the states in the western, central, and eastern parts of India reported an
average age at marriage similar to...
