Affirming the Human Dignity of Rural Women and Girls through Healthcare and Education (CSW62 Side Event)
22 Mar 2018 -  The health needs of women and girls in rural areas often go underserved. Many women do not realize that the symptoms they experience may indicate hormonal imbalances. Harmful stigma about normal biological processes such as menstruation can make it harder for them to get the help they deserve.

And even when women do seek medical care, most health care providers and programs struggle to diagnose them and often can only treat the symptoms. Poor health hurts gender equality by undermining women and girls’ ability to realize their potential and drive development in their communities.
