Women’s Health Month 2024

International Journal of Women’s Health is pleased to invite you to the upcoming Article Collection "Women's Health Month 2024."

Women’s Health Month, recognized annually in May, is an awareness event aiming to increase knowledge of women’s health and common issues affecting all women at different stages of their lives. It serves as a reminder for all women to prioritise themselves and their health. Whether this be by seeking medical attention when necessary or having the knowledge to identify any unusual symptoms and warning signs. It can also be simply taking a break to unwind and enjoy your favourite activities.

Despite all the progress in the past few decades, there remains a substantial gap in the research and treatment for conditions that not only affect women, but also those which manifest differently in women than men such as heart disease, osteoporosis and urinary incontinence. This lack of knowledge and focus has only been further highlighted by the recent COVID-19 pandemic which exposed the fragility of healthcare systems towards women’s health issues and its lack of sufficient policies and guidelines. In some lower-middle income countries, the consequences were detrimental. The socio-economic burden of the pandemic resulted in poorer mental health and due to the lack of priority towards routine checkups for expectant parents, there was also a rise in easily preventable still-born deaths.  It is evident, now more than ever, that women’s health needs to be a key priority for everyone, and that the health inequalities need to be addressed.

In this regard, the International Journal of Women’s Health would like to invite authors to submit Original Research Articles, Reviews, Clinical Studies, and other manuscript types accepted by the journal on any subject area tailored towards women’s healthcare that could add to the current knowledge. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Health conditions pertaining to Obstetrics & Gynecology, Orthopedics, Surgery, Cardiology, Hematology, Oncology, and other fields of science and medicine;
  • Early diagnosis, screening, prevention, and treatment of health conditions including chronic conditions such as pain, migraine, headaches, arthritis, osteoporosis;
  • Sexual and reproductive health including fertility patterns and emerging technologies to address infertility;
  • Infectious disease with chronic sequelae including HIV/AIDS, HPV, PID, and other STDs;
  • Psychological and psychosocial conditions - depression across the life span, substance abuse, domestic violence;
  • Physical and emotional wellbeing;
  • Health maintenance among aging females - factors affecting the quality of life including physical, social, and mental issues;
  • Male vs female incidence comparisons for conditions that affect both genders;
  • Avenues for health promotion and disease prevention across the life span.

Keywords: Women's Health, Gender Differences, Health Inequalities, Health Promotion
