Right to health is one of the basic human rights. Women have been historically discriminated against, they are a group whose health concerns need to be prioritised, understood and researched.
Health is an important component of human development. With the rapid changes brought about through globalisation and the resultant new economic order, there is an increase in the need for academic studies to be focused on the area of women's health.
Hence, the Centre for Women's Studies AMU (Aligarh Muslim University) is organising a seminar at Aligarh, from 01-03 February 2014. The theme of the Seminar is ‘Women's Health in India: Issues and Concerns'.
The proposed seminar precisely intends to deliberate and contribute to the understanding of a wide span of issues particularly focusing on the gendered aspects of women's health.
The seminar proposes to look into issues pertaining to women's access to health care facilities in India, the impact of new reproductive technology on women's reproductive health, health problems of working women, the vulnerability of women belonging to marginalised sections with respect to health problems of Dalit, Tribal and Muslim women, including health concerns of women with disabilities.
The proposed topic for the seminar intends to focus on health concerns of women belonging especially to the economically and socially marginalised sections, including Dalit, Tribal, and Muslim Women.
The theme of the seminar is further broadly categorised into following sub-themes:
1) Health, Hygiene and Nutrition of Women
2) Health Issues of Working Women: Organised and Unorganised Sectors
3) New Reproductive Technologies
4) HIV/AIDS/STDs and Women
