From HIV to fistula, maternal mortality to lupus, we examine the health issues that affect women’s lives in the developing world.

In the developing world, a woman’s health is determined by a number of factors beyond her control. As we cover the big issues – maternal mortality, early marriage, HIV, FGM – and those that usually get less attention, such as fistula and menstruation, we can see the challenges that girls and women face, and find out how we can help them stay healthy.
