Healthy Women, Healthy World
The average life expectancy of a woman in the 1900’s was 50 years old, today women live well into their 80’s.
Today, women need to not only think of their physical well-being but rather, their total well-being. Health is of course determined by biological factors however, let’s not forget about the environmental influences and our own habits (good and bad).
Women play a critical role in maintaining the health and overall well being of families and communities. They are often so focused on the well-being of others that they tend to neglect their own health.
Obstetrics and Gynaecology
The word "gynaecology" comes from the Greek gyno, gynaikos meaning woman + logia meaning study.
Therefore, gynaecology literally is the study of women.
The word “obstetrics” comes from the Neo-Latin. The art and science of managing pregnancy, labour and post-delivery of the mother.
