In many countries, the definition of Women’s health is regrettably narrowed down to mostly reproductive health leading to the emergence of a huge gap that affects society as whole rather than certain sexes.
Academia, healthcare professionals and policy makers have achieved remarkable advancements in the previous decades giving women access to healthcare services yet many goals such as sex role understanding, mental health and physical health services & equipment remain distant.
There is no doubt that women are currently in need of massive innovation programs in terms of health care of which disability and illness are brought to a minimum with the dedication of technology and science towards this issue. The Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT) is currently in the midst of an ultimate challenging goal as it aims to expand the provision of health care to be served at a cost effective premium through its medical and social initiatives rather than only focusing on reproductive health.
Based on RASIT Executive Director HRH Dr Princess Nisreen El-Hashemite’s collective data resulted over the period of 10 years of research and studies on sex- and gender- differences in illness and health, as well as social- and political- issues concerning women and girls health programs in developed and developing countries; and per the recommendations of RASIT's associates, the Executive Board and the Board of Trustees of the Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT) hereby agreed to establish the World Women’s Health and Development Forum as a Center of Excellence.
The World Women’s Health and Development Forum was signed into being in 2012 as an independent international Programme of Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT), dedicated to promoting excellence in education and science, and intent on playing an influential role in regional and international women’s and girls’ health and research policy and supports Women development in a wide range of ways.
