Rehabilitation and Women's Health: Major Insights on a Major Health Issue

© Eric P. Durak MSc

  • Access to Health Care – Access to proper health care is determined on need (and perceived need), ability to pay, health status, and acceptability of services. Health promotion experts agree that health promotion at any level may reduce the overall costs of health care, and our system that in many cases rewards persons for being sick (free emergency room care) is creating a burden on our society that may soon overwhelm us financially.
    In conclusion, women's health issues will play a more prominent role in today's and tomorrow's health care system. The aspects of prevention and quality rehabilitation will be factors because of their long-term intervention strategies and ability to reduce health care costs. The role in which health promotion and rehab can affect change in the above-discussed aspects of women's health will be key to the success and growth of both of these important elements of the health care system.
