Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organizing a Seminar on Women’s Health with the theme “Women’s Health Challenges, Access and Prevention” scheduled for 25th October, at Silver Oak Hall, India Habitat Center, New Delhi. The one-day event will provide a platform for relevant themes and issues in Women’s Health to be deliberated amongst stakeholders.
Women's health encompasses a broad range of biological and psychosocial issues. Many of the issues around women's health relate to their reproductive health, including maternal and child health, NCDs, as well as access to primary health care amongst others.
Amongst Indian women, communicable, maternal, neonatal and reproductive diseases, leading to deaths had declined from 53% of 1990 to less than 30% in 2013 but still many issues are being faced. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) accounted for 60% of all deaths amongst women in 2013, up from 38% in 1990. The numbers are becoming worse and needs deliberation. NCDs contribution to death is about 40% in the 15-49-year age group, and >75% after the age of 50. Gender differences in society and family attitude make Health for Women an important issue to be discussed and deliberated.
The Seminar aims to bring together practitioners, administrators, policy makers, and researchers within the field of Women’s Health, Gynecology, Obstetrics and Public Health to share their experiences and collaborate towards an evolving and equitable agenda on Women’s Health and associated challenges in access and prevention.
