Eliminating discrimination against women in health Giving due attention to women's health issues
Identification and promotion of women and their issues in international public health such as: safer motherhood, maternal health and child health, employment training, legislation, policy formation and support of pilot projects.
Women have specific health care needs. More than one third of disease that burdens women between the ages of 15 and 44 are conditions that afflict women exclusively or predominantly.
Sponsor panels on women's health; provide exchange forum and technical assistance of existing training, resources and materials on women's health areas; research neglected women's health areas; publicize information and run campaigns to focus on such issues.
The health of women influences the health status of other family members because women need to be healthy in order to fulfil their roles as mothers and household managers.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
