Obstetrics takes care of the issues related to pregnant females, from the time of conception till childbirth, providing pre-natal care, management of pregnancy, and post-partum care. Womens Health is the primary source of information for meeting the challenges of providing optimal health care for women throughout their lifespan. The Journal delivers cutting-edge advancements in diagnostic procedures, therapeutic protocols for the management of diseases, and innovative research in gender-based biology that impacts patient care and treatment. We tend to think of breast cancer and osteoporosis as women’s health diseases, but they also occur in men. Heart disease in a serious concern to both men and women, but risk factors and approaches to prevention are different. Women may also have specific concerns about aging, caregiving, emotional health issues, and skin care.
Comorbidity from other non reproductive disease such as cardiovascular disease contribute to both the mortality and morbidity of pregnancy, including preeclampsia. Sexually transmitted infections have serious consequences for women and infants, with mother-to-child transmission leading to outcomes such as stillbirths and neonatal deaths, and pelvic inflammatory disease leading to infertility. In addition infertility from many other causes, birth control, unplanned pregnancy, unconsensual sexual activity and the struggle for access to abortion create other burdens for women.
An international, peer-reviewed, open access, online journal, publishing original research, reports, editorials, reviews and commentaries on all aspects of women’s healthcare including gynecology, obstetrics, and breast cancer. Women’s Health Issues is a peer-reviewed, bimonthly, multidisciplinary journal that publishes research and review manuscripts related to women’s health care and policy. As the official journal of the Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health, it is dedicated to improving the health and health care of all women throughout the lifespan and in diverse communities. The journal seeks to inform health services researchers, health care and public health professionals, social scientists, policymakers, and others concerned with women’s health.
Even so, women bear exclusive health concerns, such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, menopause, and pregnancy. Depression and anxiety exhibit more frequently among female patients. Urinary tract conditions present more often in females, and sexually transmitted diseases can cause more harm to women. Among the conditions that present most frequently in women, the following eight illnesses pose considerable health risks. The journal welcomes submissions on women’s public health issues, health behaviours, breast cancer, gynecological diseases, mental health and health promotion. Women’s reproductive and sexual health has a distinct difference compared to men’s health.
They can also include medical cases in which women face problems not directly related to their biology like gender-differentiated access to medical treatment. This journal is delighted to accept research papers, review articles, short communications, case reports, mini-reviews, opinions, letter to editors, etc. Women’s health has been described as “a patchwork quilt with gaps”. The WHO considers that an undue emphasis on reproductive health has been a major barrier to ensuring access to good quality health care for all women. Conditions that affect both men and women, such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, also manifest differently in women. Women’s health issues also include medical situations in which women face problems not directly related to their biology, such as gender-differentiated access to medical treatment and other socioeconomic factors. Women’s health is of particular concern due to widespread discrimination against women in the world, leaving them disadvantaged.
What’s more, men and women may have the same condition, but different symptoms. Many diseases affect women differently and may even require distinct treatment.
The life course perspective is one of the key strategies of the World Health Organization. While both men and women contract various conditions, some health issues affect women differently and more commonly. Furthermore, many women’s health conditions go undiagnosed and most drug trials do not include female test subjects.
At the societal level, access to contraception is a key factor in controlling population growth, with resultant impact on the economy, the environment and regional development. Reproductive health includes a wide range of issues including the health and function of structures and systems involved in reproduction, pregnancy, childbirth and child rearing, including antenatal and perinatal care.
