New Report from World Health Organization has Sad Results for Women

There’s a new WHO report out, which says that although women are more likely to seek medical treatment than men, “they often fail to get adequate treatment to cope with violence, depression and problems related to old age, such as dementia.”

The saddest part of this report?

“The obstacles that stand in the way of better health for women are not primarily technical or medical in nature. They are social and political.”
