The United Nations: Racism and Gender Discrimination Still Impede Women's Health Improvement

The United Nations states that racism and gender discrimination continue to hinder the improvement of women’s health.

A United Nations agency says that racism, gender discrimination, and other forms of discrimination still pose significant barriers to improving the health of women and girls.

According to the annual report of the United Nations Population Fund, millions of women from ethnic, racial, or indigenous minority groups have been left behind in sexual and reproductive health progress.

The annual report of this entity on the world population also indicates that African women with complicated pregnancies are 130 times more likely to die than women in Europe or North America.

In the United States, African American women are three times more likely to die during childbirth than white women.

The United Nations report warns that unsafe abortion is a leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide, highlighting the role that racism, gender discrimination, and other forms of discrimination play in hindering progress in sexual and reproductive health issues.
