This paper offers an analysis of the perspective of women's health that recognizes the multiple roles that women play and their corresponding health needs will be most successful in catering to all women in this society. The paper explains that recognizing diversity of roles as well as life experience and culture, among women is a fundamental aspect of creating a health care system that emphasizes wellness rather than disease. Advocacy of individual and groups of women, on the issues of holistic care, lifespan wellness and diversity as a clinical health care provider is one of the first steps toward cultivating change in the system. The paper concludes that this might mean developing access programs for a single at risk individual, or a group of them.

From the Paper:

"Women's health is a relatively old field of medicine that, in recent years, has taken on new dimensions. (Robison, 2002) It is important to recognize the diversity among women in their health care needs and access to adequate health resources. Recognition of diversity, in the broader culture, in the various roles of women and identity of women is an essential aspect of providing essential clinical care to women in a women's health setting."
