This chapter attempts to closely examine the situation of womenís health in Maharashtra from a gender perspective and highlight underlying inequities in terms of access to health goods and services and health outcomes. The attempt is to view womenís health within the context of other inequities such as geography, region, class, caste, tribe and others, since these inequities work synergistically to produce negative health outcomes. The chapter is organised as follows. It initially gives the conceptual framework which underlies the paper, followed by a picture of gender inequities in health determinants, status, risks and access to health care.
