    This paper examines gender inequalities of health in Third World Countries.

    Health hazards are present at every stage of a woman's life cycle.

    Health problems which pose the greatest hardship to women in these countries include : reproductive health problems, excess female mortality in childhood, violence against girls and women, occupational and environmental hazards, and cervical and breast cancer.

    Many of these lead to maternal mortality which was the most focussed upon indicator of women's health in the literature.

    Gender inequalities of health originate in the traditional society where definitions of health status and traditional medical practices all reflect the subordinate social status of women.
