Womens Health in the Majority World : Issues & Initiatives Hardback
Edited by Laurie Elit, Jean Chamberlain Froese
This novel text outlines issues faced by the majority of women living in low and middle income countries.
The unique aspect of this book is the numerous examples of innovative solutions that have been implemented in various global settings.
The chapter authors are transparent concerning the barriers encountered and successes experienced.
This book covers well known medical issues related to pregnancy (like maternal morbidity, and abortion, female genital cutting), HIV, and gynecologic cancers with a focus on cervical cancer prevention and treatment.
This book goes beyond the medical diagnoses to explore the social determinants of health such as environment priorities like the water-health nexus, social ills like human trafficking, political influencers like the impact of advocacy and low and high resource countries' government agendas and the books closes with a discussion on the bioethical dilemmas.
This goal of this book is to enable the reader to understand that by improving the status of women how this benefits the whole family and community.
We ultimately hope that the reader becomes engaged in the process of improving the status of these women's.
