Abstract

Women have a significant part in a society’s development, therefore health services must be in agreement with their needs. Half of Iran’s population is made up of women and their health needs should be prioritized.

To review previous researches, articles were found in PUBMED, IRANMEDEX and MAGIRAN. Studies investigating a female health problem in any age period based on abstract were chosen and after critical appraisal 57 were included in this review.

No studies inquired specific female health problems during childhood. Out of 57 articles included, 6 were about adolescent’s health, 24 studies in reproductive ages, 4 investigating menopause issues and 12 articles on elder hood topics.

There exist many areas in female’s health that are not considered properly based on this review. It is suggested to provide budget, regulations and specialists in order to discover women’s health problems in each age period separately.
