This report surveys women ' s health problems from infancy through old age. It then recommends a package of essential clinical and public services chosen for their impact on female disability and death, their affordability, and their feasibility in developing countries. Even in the poorest countries, governments can help establish these essential services for women and ensure access to them by financing health programs for the poor. International assistance agencies can do their part by sharing their expertise and influencing policy and funding priorities.
