Researchers Find That Investing In Women’s Health Provides Long-Term Benefits In Economic And Social Health
Researchers at Harvard University’s Chan School of Public Health have found that investing in women’s health yields benefits across societal, humanitarian and economic domains, Real Clear Science reported.
The researchers scanned through over 20,000 papers on “women, health and economics” published between 1970 and 2013, RCS said. Ultimately, the researchers decided to review 124 “relevant, high-quality articles” to review, and found the positive, shared outcomes that come from making women’s health a priority.
“These results demonstrate the necessity and efficacy of investment in initiatives that address women’s health,” the reviewers write. “Societies that prioritize women’s health will likely have better population health overall, and will remain more productive for generations to come.”
