  1. Women's health in a changing world : a continous challenge.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Medical Women's International Association. Congress. The Hague NLD, 1995/05.

    There is reason to pay extra attention to women's health.

    Not only do complications related to reproduction pose risks to women's health ; environmental, in particular cultural factors do so as well.

    The combination of sexual and economic subordination of women in many societies leads to discrimination which has a detrimental effect on the health of women, starting at birth.

    Violence against women has only recently been recognized as a worldwide problem.

    Over the past 20 years research and action at all levels have contributed to a better understanding of these problems, and more appropriate identification of interventions to tackle them.
