According to the Institute of Women’s Policy Research, in the United States overall, women’s health status has improved in some areas and declined in others. Women’s mortality rates from heart disease, lung cancer, and breast cancer have decreased since the publication of IWPR’s 2004 Status of Women in the States report, as has the incidence of AIDS among female adolescents and adults. Women’s incidence of chlamydia and diabetes, however, have increased. In addition, the average number of poor mental health days per month, suicide mortality rate, and average number of days per month of limited activities have also gone up for women.
With women being the nucleus of the family and at the forefront of the workforce, the importance of women in the society is beyond any suspicion. The influence of women on society is unquestionable, therefore the importance of women’s health is undeniable.
