CHOICE Review

Kitts and Roberts, academically and experientially well qualified, present a broad overview of issues in women's health in developing countries and the gender inequities in the rights to and availability of health care. Nine chapters discuss social, cultural, and economic factors as they impact issues of education, empowerment nutrition, and the working environment of women. One chapter is devoted to AIDS and one to tropical diseases. Both quantitative and qualitative interdisciplinary research are needed to improve the quality of health care for women and to refocus research in health care to include both genders. Priorities for research on women's health, going beyond reproduction, and an extensive listing of specific research questions are of particular interest to researchers in public health and health policy. Supported by an extensive, current bibliography, including published articles, books, and proceedings of international conferences addressing current issues in developing countries, this book is a valuable resource for health researchers and policy makers with a global community perspective.
