The global question is the same

In Women's Health on March 15, 2010 at 5:05 pm

The four-day conference on women’s health puts a focus on women’s health issues in urban settings. What is happening in Kenya may be different than India but the issues remain the same. Women’s longevity and health are affected by the environment. The global question is the same: What is the best way to impact these very different situations?

For example: One conference session looks at the health issues for women living on the streets of Mumbai. Another investigates the respiratory problems of  women living and working in the small household industries in urban Thai communities.

There is no single answer, but the Congress hopes to come up with ways to impact women’s health in many different kinds of settings.
