Women Empowerment and Women’s Healthcare

Social empowerment is vital when it comes to women. There are specific indicators of women social empowerment including gender inequality base, fertility rates, sex ratios, and life expectancy rates. These indicators show you the status of women, in general, in terms of availability of health care and birth control facilities, literacy, their educational status, economic growth, age at marriage, their participation outside of the home, and literacy rates.

Across the globe, the issue of gender equality is ever-present. The base of gender inequality is very poor among significant countries all over the world. Sex ratio in Asia alone is against women. There are no radical changes in the status of women around the world even though there is an overall increase in life expectancy. Fertility rates have also declined in various regions of the world. While this is a good thing, its positive impact is not as much as most people want. In terms of literacy rates, there are gender gaps around the globe. Looking at female literacy rates, they are not at all empowering in developed countries.

Many issues affect women empowerment across the world. One of these issues involve healthcare. Others should never undermine the health of women in society and even themselves. There should be much value to the health of women and the healthcare services they require. When it comes to women’s health, you need to understand that women go through a lot of challenges throughout their life. The healthcare needs of women are never the same as those of men.

It is unfortunate that up to this day, you can find healthcare practices to be against the rights of women and their health. There are people who engage in heinous crimes to take advantage of women. Across the world, you see high rates of maternal mortality and infant mortality. Early child marriages are the main reason for these high rates.

In many areas of the world, women don’t have access to quality health care. Some women cannot even make informed choices about their reproductive rights. Some women don’t even have access to affordable family planning methods of choice. In this regard, women don’t get appropriate knowledge and education on the matter. Women become vulnerable to a range of STDs and other infectious diseases.

Clearly, the women’s knowledge about health care and nutrition are old school. What they end up doing is disregarding modern methods of medicine. To make things work for all women, alternative treatments should work hand in hand with mainstream healthcare systems. The integration of modern-day medicine and alternative methods help women get quality yet reasonable health care. The government through women’s healthcare associations can also contribute to empowering women by providing for their healthcare needs. There are now many healthcare clinics established for the benefit of women.
