About this book

In the increasingly globalized twenty-first century, cross-cultural communication and knowledge of culturally informed health practices are critical skills for women’s health providers. Around the Globe for Women’s Health is a concise, culturally sensitive, and clinically relevant guide that aims to increase health equity through prevention and improved clinical care for women around the world. Case-based chapters highlight clinical issues (such as obstetric fistula, malaria, and postpartum hemorrhage) and barriers to care (the unmet need for family planning, or limited radiotherapy in low-resource countries, for example). Around the Globe for Women's Health is a must-have resource not just for physicians considering working in another country, but all providers seeking to provide better care for diverse populations of women within the United States.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book covers common women’s health issues that obstetrics/gynecologists face in different areas around the world … . The intent is to highlight the challenges in women’s healthcare globally. This is certainly a worthwhile goal and the authors do a good job of achieving it. The book is intended for residents and physicians who plan to participate in global initiatives. … This is an interesting book on global women’s health issues for obstetricians and gynecologists.” (Anthony Shanks, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2013)
