Human Development, Women and Health


This report addresses three different but closely tied subjects. The focus of analysis bears on women issues in Guatemala, at three key stages in their life cycle: childhood and adolescence, adulthood and the third age. This analysis is introduced by a brief reflection on gender characteristics in Guatemala. Finally, there is a separate analysis on health issues in Guatemala.
