(All delegates are requested to wear the SHEROES T shirts and jeans)

The dramatic increase in rates of non-communicable diseases, from cancers to diabetes, affects reproductive health. Women’s mental health, infertility, and sexuality are all still neglected. The disproportionate number of women in poverty is a further health challenge. A life-cycle approach to women’s health is sorely needed. The panel will explore these challenges, and how the health needs of women can be better met.
