There is a need to addressing the gender, class or ethnic disparities that exist in healthcare.
Gender is one of many social determinants of health—which include social, economic, and political factors—that play a major role in the health outcomes of women in India.Therefore, the high level of gender inequality in India negatively impacts the health of women.
India currently has one of the highest rates of malnourished women among developing countries
Dr. Nisha Kapoor shared that a recent study conducted by WHO found that nearly 70 percent of non-pregnant women and 75 percent of pregnant women were anemic in terms of iron-deficiency. One of the main drivers of malnutrition is gender specific selection of the distribution of food resources.
India is facing a growing cancer epidemic, with a large increase in the number of women with breast cancer. By the year 2020 nearly 70 percent of the world’s cancer cases will come from developing countries, with a fifth of those cases coming from India.
Cardiovascular disease is a major contributor to female mortality in India. Indians account for 60% of the world's heart disease burden, despite accounting for less than 20% of the world's population. Indian women have a particular high mortality from cardiac disease because of differential access to health care between the sexes.
The lack of maternal health contributes to future economic disparities for mothers and their children. Poor maternal health often affects a child’s health in adverse ways and also decreases a woman’s ability to participate in economic activities.
QRG Health City is committed to create the awareness of prevention of these diseases and problems related to women.
