Until recently, women’s healthcare predominately focused on reproductive issues while medical research largely ignored other critical healthcare areas. Now, however, much attention is being placed on specific health issues affecting women, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

Women are now taking more responsibility for their own health and health education. Due to heightened awareness of disease prevention and healthy lifestyle choices, women are living longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Also, in partnership with their doctors, many women are becoming active managers of their own healthcare.
