Women and Health: Todays’ Challenges

19.01.2017 / Created by (EMWF)

The Women’s Rights Delegation at the French Senate published this report as part of the "bill to modernize our health system". The report deconstructs a few misconceptions about women's health, such as the burden of cardiovascular disease, or the risks of female smoking. It focuses on specifically unknown female risks such as the multiple medical consequences of sexual violence, threats related to the unfavorable economic situation of women, and the fragility of women to depression. The report is also in favor of the mechanism introduced in the National Assembly to combat anorexia. The report also addresses the consolidation of gains in sexual and reproductive health.
