Women's Health FAQs

What is women’s health?

Traditionally this field in medicine refers to the field of gynaecology. The word Gynaecology originates from the two words Gynae meaning woman and Logic which means knowledge. In the field of Gynaecology the most common areas of concern are menstrual, menopause, osteoporosis and breast health related.

The definition of health according to the WHO: "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Many different health organizations has been trying to have the WHO add “spiritual” to the definition.

It has been proven that women react differently to certain diseases, medication, life’s circumstances, etc. on a physiological level than do men. It is clear that a space should exist where women are able to discuss concerns regarding their wellness.

What does a women’s health evaluation entail?
