Women’s Health Care Month is observed annually in May. It was the National Cervical Cancer Coalition (N.C.C.C.) that recognized each May as Women’s Health Month. The observation officially kicks off every year with National Women’s Health Week. This is also an annual observance pioneered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. The goal of the holiday is to empower women in such a way that they can make health a priority. It also equips women with the knowledge to help other women on their journeys to improve their health. With the efforts of individuals and healthcare workers, every woman can live a healthy and happy life.

The celebrations for Women’s Health Care Month were started by the U.S. Department of Health. Caught in the rigorous demands of work and family, women often forego an active lifestyle and a healthy diet to keep up with these demands. However, the consequences of neglecting health can be dire. When women fail to take care of their health, hereditary illnesses may afflict them sooner and with more severity. A sedentary lifestyle may also result in illnesses that can be avoided with a good lifestyle.

With a growing focus on personal health, it is extremely important for all women and girls, especially those with underlying health conditions like hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and respiratory conditions, and women 65 years and older, to take care of their health. Taking care of yourself and your loved ones should always be a top priority.

Women’s Health Care Month makes the mission easy by setting up health camps, promoting specialized care, and raising awareness of the various ways a woman can improve her health. During Women’s Health Care Month get in touch with your doctors for a full-body medical check-up and the steps you need to take to treat an ailment. Timely medical intervention will not only save your health from deteriorating further but also detect illnesses that you may have overlooked. This is also the month to pledge to take better care of yourself and live the healthy, active life that you have always dreamt of!
