The World's Women 2010 uniquely reviews and analyses the current availability of data and assesses progress made in the reporting of national statistics, as opposed to internationally prepared estimates, relevant to gender concerns. Published every five years, the World's Women sets out a blueprint for improving the availability of data in the areas of demographics, health, education, work, violence against women, poverty, decision-making and human rights.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The 1995 Beijing Platform for Action emphasizes that women have the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health. Equipping women with the necessary knowledge and skills to fulfil their health potential is essential to their own well-being as well as that of their children and families. Tackling gender inequalities in the provision of health services will enable all women and men to enjoy healthier lives and ultimately lead to greater gender equality in all areas.
