Adressing the Female Health Gap.Adressing the Female Health Gap.

Women spend 25% more of their lives in poor health than men. Closing the health gap for women could lead to a 1.7% increase in per capita GDP, the World Economic Forum said in Davos on Wednesday: Investing in women’s health is an investment in families, communities, societies, and economies.

“Our analysis demonstrates that addressing the women’s health gap and investing in women’s health must be a priority for every country,” said Shyam Bishen, Head of the Centre for Health and Healthcare at the World Economic Forum.

The World Economic Forum has launched the Global Alliance for Women’s Health to bridge the health gap. 42 organizations have expressed interest in joining the alliance and have pledged $55 million to improve women’s health outcomes.
