Women’s health concern remains the most neglected matter in India; But why?

Women’s health is the most neglected issue in India. The belief that maternal mortality is the root of India’s female population’s poor sex ratio, low life expectancy, and high death rates is often disregarded.

India has one of the highest rates of death among women, in spite of greater knowledge of women’s rights and health problems. Only 37% of women have access to health care, compared to 67% of males, according to a collaborative study by academics at Harvard University, the Indian Statistical Institute, the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

The study also discovered that a woman’s reproductive age had a significant role in predicting whether or not she had access to a doctor. The belief that maternal mortality is the root of India’s female population’s poor sex ratio, low life expectancy, and high death rates informs many of the government’s health programs. Although it is sometimes disregarded, a significant contributor to maternal mortality is the poor social and physical condition of women before they become mothers.

Women’s general health issues rarely receive the attention they merit. The study found that gender bias became more pronounced in tier 2 and 3 cities and grew when branches were farther from major cities like Delhi. This is a result of a lack of understanding about women’s health in general and the resources available to them to enhance it in particular, as well as a lack of funding for research and the provision of high-quality healthcare for women in India.

Women are more susceptible to a number of deadly conditions, including diabetes and the risk of linked heart problems, thyroid and obesity, osteoporosis, migraine, and depression. vHealth’s #ReduceTheRatio project offers a variety of services, including professional consultation at leading hospitals and whole body testing for early diagnosis and detection, to help people grasp the consequences and causes of these disorders.

Due to the many responsibilities they are expected to fulfill in the home, career, and interpersonal relationships, depression is a problem that affects a lot of women in India. Due to differences in their hormonal systems, women are more prone than males to be diagnosed with depression, and they also react to stress differently. However, because of the societal stigmas associated with it, women do not obtain enough care or assistance.

In order to #ReduceTheRatio for depression, thyroid, diabetes, and heart problems, vHealth encourages women to be evaluated and treated. Women are more likely than males to suffer thyroid disease, but because the factors that cause it are frequently misinterpreted, many of them choose not to seek treatment.

Diabetes complications increase the risk of cardiovascular disease-related mortality in diabetes, although these conditions are less likely to receive the proper care. vHealth promotes women’s access to primary care, preventative care, specialized consultation at prestigious hospitals, full-body diagnostic, and tests.
