Today, March 6, is International Women’s Day. The Wold Health Organization (2015) provides the following information about International Women’s Day:

6 March 2015 — International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate women and their achievements. It’s also a day to take stock of how women’s rights, especially the right to health, are fulfilled in the world. Women still face many health problems. 8 March is an opportunity to re-commit to addressing issues ranging from cancer to reproductive health, from mental health to HIV. That’s why WHO and its partners are developing a new global strategy for women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health.

Please, visit the WHO’s website to learn about  the top 10 health issues for women.
