Women’s health needs, conditions and diseases are very specific.
Results from studies of men have often been inappropriately generalized to women. Not only are women biologically different from men, but they also usually differ in the roles and life contexts assigned to them by their particular social settings. As a result, there are important differences between women and men, such as susceptibility, detection and most effective treatment.
This affects particular health issues such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, peri-menopausal issues, gynecological issues (such as STDs and fertility concerns), oncology, disorders involving the endocrine and autoimmune systems (eg. diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis), psychological and neurological disorders (eg. depression, anxiety and migraines), fertility, contraception and nutrition.
