Women's right to health is protected by international human rights law, yet States often fail to fulfil the obligations of the treaties they have signed. As a result many women suffer disadvantages compared with men. Looking at the relevant treaties this book challenges the offending States to do what they have legally bound themselves to do and take steps necessary to ensure that all women are fully enabled to live healthy lives.
