International Women’s Day Editorial: "Women’s Health Equity is Progress for All"

"Women’s health should mean more than just reproductive health," states Dr Ophira Ginsburg in a new editorial for ecancermedicalscience.

In celebration of International Women's Day, the editorial reviews the worldwide cancer burden in terms of women's health equity.

In developing countries, low-resource women bear a disproportionate part of the cancer burden, which resonates throughout communities.

"A diagnosis of breast or cervical cancer contributes to the cycle of poverty," Dr Ginsburg writes. "Women’s empowerment can therefore be viewed as the basis for - and the consequence of - effective breast and cervical cancer control."
