The health status of women is an important concern as in many societies, most of the time women are found in a disadvantageous state by discrimination rooted by the socio-cultural factors. Like many other parts of the world, women in Bangladesh are relatively disadvantageous in terms of their economic, social and health conditions. Millions of women are experiencing poor health conditions as well as various forms of malnutrition. Although, men and women have some similar challenges regarding health facilities in Bangladesh, women are generally being deprived of getting such facilities. Their health needs, insurance options, usage of health care services etc. are shaped by an ample range of factors including their age, income, race and ethnicity, level of education, family structure, employment status, etc. Therefore in most of the cases, women have to struggle with poor health by facing considerable economic and social barriers in obtaining healthcare. Over the past decades, much progress has been made in the health status of women. In Bangladesh, however, these advancements are overridden by gender-based discrimination. Moreover, women are generally live longer than their male counterparts but with a poorer health condition. Again, some health challenges have a different impact on women compared to men which also creates difficulties to get proper healthcare when they need. Furthermore, gender inequalities, indifferent segments like education, income, employment etc. minimizes the ability of women to protect their health.
