Abstract: This paper presents the contribution of health promotion to social and economic development, to improve the health status of women and their families in Latin America and the Caribbean. The document aims to heighten awareness of the major causes of death and illness among women in the Region, and the related socio-environmental conditions. Finally, the paper proposes lines of action for PAHO and its Member Countries to take in health promotion, to move toward more people-centered/gender-equitable development and the improved health of women in the Region. It is envisioned that Member Governments will develop concrete plans of action in health promotion, based on the lines of action presented in this paper.
