International Women's Day 2010: Empowering Women At Home and Abroad

Every year since 1911, International Women’s Day on March 8 has focused global attention to the continued need for improving women’s status and opportunities everywhere in the world. Because of their roles in raising families, providing and seeking care, and managing household needs, the health of women is fundamental to healthy communities. And because healthy, productive communities are essential for global economic growth and regional security, the health of women is critical to global prosperity.
