When addressing the health of women, the global health literature has largely focused on reproductive health. Yet, the leading causes of death and DALYs in women globally center on cancer, cardiovascular disease, mental disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, and other non-communicable diseases.
In this webinar, Global Health 101 author, Richard Skolnik, broadly explores women’s health and what can be done to address women’s health issues that go beyond reproductive and sexual health. Richard will also comment on women's involvement in global health efforts and how we might enhance the training of women leaders in global health. REGISTER here for Skolnik's October 31st webinar.
Just published this week, the new Fourth Edition of Global Health 101 offers a full chapter that covers women's health issues as well as two additional career chapters on the Navigate 2 platform.
