WOMEN'S HEALTH & GENDER EMPOWERMENT
Women experience unique health conditions from pregnancy, menopause to gynaecological conditions, such as PMS. Many health conditions affect only women or impact them more severely. Women also have a different experience than men in their daily lives, workplace and social settings due to gender inequalities and social conditioning.
Practice of Global Ancient Knowledge Systems (GAKS) of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda has shown positive impact on women’s health and their environment.
At Sri Sri Institute for Advanced Research, our research is focussed on quantifying the effects of these holistic practices on common medical conditions that women experience and on their quality of life. We are also focussed on understanding the role of Global Ancient Knowledge systems on gender equality, perception and a woman’s journey through her life.
