Description:
There have been significant advances in the health of women in this country in the last forty years. Women have benefited from the major increase In life expectancy this century as a result of childhood immunisation programmes and improved maternity services. The life expectancy of women at birth has Increased from 67 years In 1950 to 77.9 In 1991. The matemal death rate has fallen from 3 I to 2 per 100.000 live and stillbirths between 1970 and 1992 '. The Infant mortahty rate fell from 19.5 to 5,9 per 1,000 live births between 1970 and 1993. By companson with the past and with the position of women in many countries at a similar level of development. the risk to the health of Irish women posed by pregnancy and birth as measured by these limited but important indicators. have been minimised. However the life expectancy of women at birth In this country is one of the lowest in the European Union, suggesting that there is scope to add years to the lives of Irish women. At age forty, Irish women have the lowest life expectancy in the Union. They can expect to live 39.0 more years compared to an EU average of 40.8 years. The life expectancy of Irish traveller women, which is twelve years shorter than Irish women generally is a major cause of concern.
