INTRODUCTION Women’s healthcare is a crucial issue in any part of the world since women make up most part of the world’s population in addition to their reproductive importance. Many women in most part of the world do not have direct access to health care provided by neither the government nor the other stake holders in health. This may be due to lack of finances as many cannot afford medical covers available, long distance, ignorance or personal beliefs. Therefore many cases of women deaths during birth or due to health related issues are on the rise. Women have an added responsibility of taking care of their families’ health issues in addition to making a living i.e. they are mothers, wives and workers which is a great task. They are also disadvantaged in that their income is less than that of men. It is even more difficult for these mothers or wives who are not insured to gain access to an affordable and high quality Medicare (Susan . 2007).
