The general perception of the woman's role in the family is changing, albeit slowly. She is no longer relegated to the home and kitchen and is seen taking an active interest in supporting and providing for the family. Whether it is through providing support at home or contributing to the family income, her role in running the household is increasingly being recognized today, signifying the growing importance of a woman's life.
Hence insuring a woman's life becomes as important as a man's. And woman centric health insurance policies are critical today.
A recent US-based research and advocacy group reported that India accounts for 26.4 per cent of the cases where women die of cervical cancer globally. Also, cervical cancer kills an estimated 2,75,000 women every year and 5,00,000 new cases are reported worldwide. It is not only cancer but many such ailments that put women's health at high risk.
From cardio-vascular diseases, breast cancer to osteoporosis, the potential risks are high. Contrary to popular belief, heart disease isn't just a man's disease, it threatens women as well. According to the statistics by American Heart Association, out of every three women, more than one woman suffers from some cardio-vascular disease.
