Gender discrimination & health


Women often get neglected when it comes to health care programmes, leading to malnutrition and higher rates of mortality. Indian Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, while deploring gender discrimination in healthcare programmes pursued by South Asian nations, has mentioned that there are three times as many beds for men as there are for women in India.

No wonder, India has high rates of maternal mortality and malnutrition, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases among women. Do you think the following steps will help ending gender discrimination faced by women in health care programmes?
