We work to create a healthy generation through women’s empowerment
Women in traditional market communities in Bali have especially high risk of developing health problems due to their low education, low income, long work hours and lack of time.
Evidence suggests women generally tend to put low priority on their health, failing to allocate time and money for health care, especially preventive care. They also tend to have less access to information than men and are less empowered to protect themselves.
