Summary
British Medical Association highly commends this book in the 2010 Medical Book Competition

This is a report on women and health - both women's health needs and their contribution to the health of societies. Women's health has long been a concern for WHO but today it has become an urgent priority. This report explains why. Using current data, it takes stock of what we know now about the health of women throughout their lives and across the different regions of the world. Highlighting key issues - some of which are familiar, others that merit far greater attention - the report identifies opportunities for making more rapid progress. It points to areas in which better information - plus policy dialogue at national, regional and international levels - could lead to more effective approaches.
