Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education

The related-women issues are various and complex. Even nowadays, despite many improvements in women’s life, there are still many problems among women more than men, due to many different reasons. In fact, women are still the main victims of poverty, violence, malnutrition and poor hygiene; therefore, improving their life status and empowerment should be considered as an important issue. Since women are considered as the main health-axis of family, they are responsible for the management of the health of the whole family members as well as education of a healthy lifestyle to other family members, thus attention to women’s health status is very important.
