NGOs & Women Rights
Traditionally, NGOs have always been at the forefront of promoting new ideas and encouraging governments to implement them. At both national and international levels, NGOs represent the voice of the people. They have taken on roles such as advocacy, education, and training and have been active in overseeing those not achieved.
For the past few decades, NGOs have been actively advocating for the full recognition of women’s enormous contribution to family, community, and development. NGOs are among the strongest advocates for implementing a series of United Nations World Conferences on Women, beginning with the International Women’s Year Conference in Mexico City in 1975.
Women Health & NGOs role in Empowering women
Many significant discussions on women’s issues in NGOs over the past few years have focused on moving from a “women-centred” approach to “gender,” especially their contribution to development. Health is one of the issues to be approached in this way in.
The key government departments that need to be involved in developing gender policy in health care often need to consider the fact that it is male-dominated and generally unrelated to the needs of women. In some cases, they may initially block attempts to introduce a gender-based approach to health care delivery, believing that it will be more beneficial for women and more beneficial for women than men. NGOs can act as a catalyst by encouraging different sectors of health to participate.
It will be more effective if different types of charities work together. Various NGOs have different constituencies – for example, in addition to health professional NGOs, there are women’s NGOs that focus on activities that improve the status of women and development NGOs that focus primarily on development issues.
Governments and Women Healthcare (Empower women)
When the government decides to adopt a full-sector approach to gender sensitivity in health care, it must involve ministries other than those engaged in providing health care. In countries with high maternal mortality and morbidity, the Ministry of Transportation plays a vital role in ensuring that ‘high-risk’ women can go to hospitals to receive the treatment they need, often saving lives.
The highly disproportionate representation of men and their dominance among those responsible for health care planning and provisioning has had dire consequences on the health status of women and girls, especially in developing countries. Many of the negative factors that affect women’s health go unnoticed because they are women or more severely affected by them. As a result, they are adequately accounted for by health plans and providers in meeting the health needs of women and girls. It should also be publicly acknowledged that women have a right to enjoy health and that discrimination against them in this context violates their human rights.
The situation calls for centralized advocacy aimed at sensitizing health services, opinion makers, and individuals responsible for planning and providing to society the importance of adopting a gender-based approach to health care. This approach will help improve things for more than half of the world population’s health status. Emphasizing the critical role that health professional associations and their practice members play as influential members of a health awareness community is also important. If the skills and experience gained by NG0s to deliver messages to the public are not employed in support of this policy, they could become entrepreneurs.
How Does Transparent Hands Empower Women?
Transparent Hands Pakistan is Pakistan’s largest tech platform for crowdfunding. The money raised is spent to alleviate the problems of the health care sector in Pakistan. There are many types of health services offered by the company. These include medical and surgical treatments, as well as general medical camps. The platform promises to provide medical counselling and medication to those who cannot afford it. Women’s health is given the highest priority with transparent hands.
In daily life, female hygiene refers to the personal care products used during and during vaginal discharge. These products can be found in menstrual hygiene products as well as in the shopping store. Transparent Hands strives hard for implementation of the concept in Pakistani society, with a special emphasis on women’s hygiene in remote areas with the lowest development index of the country!
Women were made aware of the importance of hygiene at free medical camps organized by Transparent Hands in various parts of the country. Women patients experiencing specific health challenges due to not using hygiene products were also tested and given free medication. However, the scope of these free medical camps is not limited to raising awareness about women’s hygiene. Free medicine, consultation, and diagnostic services are provided to poor patients from different parts of the country for almost every common ailment and disorder.
To donate to women’s health, you can use the Transparent Hands crowdfunding web portal. Payment methods are one hundred percent secure. Donors can select any patient and fund treatment.
Although women are respected in all cultures as givers of life, they are often viewed as inferior. The woes of women continue to deter policymakers from making women’s health and well-being a priority. The low status of women prevents them from expecting and seeking better treatment. Of course, not all women accept mistreatment as usual. No, more and more women want the full rights of women to be respected. The global movement for women’s rights is one of the most potent social forces and most successful in recent history.
Women all over the world have the right to be mothers with safety. They have a right to life. They have the right to live without sexual harassment and violence. However, millions of women suffer from violence, which seriously affects their health and the health of their families and community. Globally, the health burden of violence against women is compared to the burden of other risk factors and diseases, such as HIV / AIDS, tuberculosis, childbirth, cancer, and heart disease. That is why it is important to address gender-based discrimination in health and development programs. Organizations like Transparent Hands are playing a massive role in that regard.
