Enriching women’s healthcare delivery is a vital step to gender equality in India. It’s important to consider the facts – currently, India ranks 140th of 156 countries on gender inequality, based on World Economic Forum’s 2021 Global Gender Gap Report.iThis reflects the country’s performance on numerous dimensions – health and survival, economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, and political empowerment. To pave the way for gender equality, it is imperative to scale efforts to support girls and women across growth indicators. One such way is to advance women’s healthcare, such as by supporting women to take charge of their health through initiatives that ensure equitable access to quality care. The latest National Family Health Survey (NFHS-5) showcased a picture of progress on gender equality and healthcare in India. More women nationwide have their own phones (although there remain disparities in rural India) now more than ever before. Additionally, married women’s household decision-making relating to healthcare increased from 73.8% in 2015-16 to 92% in 2020-21. Even as growth is visible across women’s healthcare, there are still gaps to bridge. Women’s key health needs are divided across several categories, from hormonal or nutritional insufficiencies (such as anemia), pregnancy complications and maternal mortality, to menopause and noncommunicable diseases like thyroid dysfunction. These can affect all aspects of a woman’s life, including social life, personal finances, and workplace productivity, in addition to overall health and wellbeing. Despite solutions existing, many women are hesitant to seek help. This is often because women deprioritize their own health compared to other family members. Through awareness, education, and scaling up of access to services, we can begin to address issues across a woman’s entire life cycle.
