Women and Health is a comprehensive reference which addresses health issues affecting women of all ages--adolescence through maturity. It goes far beyond other books on this topic which concentrate only on reproductive health, and has a truly international perspective. It covers key issues ranging from osteoporosis to breast cancer and other cancers, domestic violence, sexually transmitted diseases, occupational hazards, eating disorders, heart disease and other chronic illnesses, substance abuse, and societal and behavioral influences on health.
Women and Health covers not only those conditions that are unique to or occur more frequently in women, but also those that present differently or are treated differently in women.

Key Features:
* Comprehensive, in-depth review of all aspects of women's health
* Highlights key women's health issues including osteoporosis, domestic violence, breast cancer, menopause, infertility, heart disease, and many others
* Addresses international women's health issues from a human rights and cultural perspective
* Presents the latest research and clinical findings from leaders in their respective fields
* Highlights controversies in treatment modalities
* Challenges the medical community to address the impact of gender on health
* Expands our thinking about the perceptions of disease and disorders in women
* Challenges current status quo in health care delivery
