Greetings MED-Hive community!
HAPPY NEW MONTH TO EVERYONE!
Hello everyone! We welcome you once again, to the Med-hive community Monthly Theme Reveal Post for Health Promotion, Awareness and Discussions. As this community's main objective, members have the opportunity to join and share knowledge, and practical tips and answer questions about the theme of the month.
We all want to learn and grow with this community this month, as we write about a chosen area of focus. Please, feel free to do as many posts as you want about the topic throughout the month even outside the weekly prompts. We aim to open health discussions regarding our topic and the more the merrier!
Medicine has myriads of things to write about, considering the different points of view from the various health professionals or even non-professionals, everyone has a health experience. Thus, you have the opportunity to glean from them and expand your horizons about our topic for the month, here on the wonderful Hive Blockchain.
Let's get the knowledge flowing, shall we?
The theme of this month is - WOMEN'S HEALTH
Women's health is a critical topic, given that women face specific health challenges throughout their lives. According to the World Health Organization, women's health encompasses a wide range of issues, including reproductive health, maternal health, mental health and non-communicable diseases such as cancer and heart disease.¹
Research has shown that investing in women's health leads to positive outcomes, not only for women but also for their families and communities.² For instance, improving access to reproductive healthcare can reduce maternal mortality rates while addressing non-communicable diseases can improve quality of life and increase productivity.
When it comes to mental health, research has also shown that depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are more prevalent in women than men ³ and these conditions can have a significant impact on women's quality of life.
With this being said, the MED-HIVE community thought it an important subject to discuss and more importantly, a topic to raise awareness about.
Therefore, it's now officially the beginning of the month's theme!
And we have the Golden honour of inviting all members of the Ladies of Hive community @ladiesofhive #LOH to join in this, sharing their experiences and enlightening the general public in every way about this month's theme.
In the following days, we will launch weekly challenges with prizes to be won, so make sure to pay attention to the @med-hive account in the next couple of days! Just to give you all a sneak peek of what might happen this month here's a summary:
