The health of women worldwide has further implications beyond physical well-being. Health is a profound predictor of overall quality of life and has capabilities to infringe upon the accessibility of other human needs. Without basic health, women cannot be equal as they are consistently tied down by their lack of physical well-being. Women, as all people, have a right to their health. Women deserve to have their health be a priority in global development. Not only because health is beneficial for its own sake, but because of its intersection with others areas of development. Basic health for women must be achieved before other development goals can be truly successful.
