Although there are many reference guides to diseases, symptoms, and treatment for health problems of women, there is no comprehensive source for the social, political, economic and ethical issues that affect women’s health decisions. The Encyclopedia of Women’s Health Issues provides valuable information on over 200 topics, including the issues and history surrounding diseases and medical procedures faced by women; health concerns of different ethnic groups of women; information on organizations and programs that deal with women’s health; profiles on the people who have pioneered women’s health services and information; and legal decisions related to women’s health. An extensive bibliography and guides to good Web sites and organizations give users additional helpful resources. Among the features and benefits of this reference are
Charts and tables that present helpful facts and statistics
Contacts for Web sites and organizations that provide access to information about women’s health issues–much of it free
Coverage of the issues, not just the diseases, critical to women’s healthcare
Provides both basic information and guidance for further reading and research
