A relevant , vigorous and sustainable model is required for an improvement in the health system performance to prevent a decline in the status of health and development and also to break the vicious cycle of poverty and ill-health in Africa.

A powerful model for improvement would embrace all the proportions that prove to be critical to health by labelling not only the risk factors of disease but also linking health and employment ,nourishment, food security , financing for health and cross-cutting issues.

While this book covers many issues on a global scale, everything relates back to a single central argument: that women are not treated like humans in the “third world.” The authors argue that because women are seen as subhuman in many places, they and their issues are invisible to much of the world. When women are not treated with common humanity, they are subjected to innumerable cruelties.

By having knowledge about the symptoms of the flu and the importance of the flu vaccine, I was able to health promote to families.
Not only that, but they also suffer physically. Aside from direct physical harm that is inflicted to women, through segregation, women suffer from the physiological side effects that occur due to the long exposure to gender segregation. According to (Rettner, 2011), there are six major physical side effects to sexual harassment, that can be explained as follows. Long term depression, sourced from self blame, leads on the long run to a degradation of mental health.
