The Hologic Global Women's Health Index reveals the state of women's health on a global scale.
In nearly 50 countries and territories, less than 10% of women said they had been tested for cancer in the previous year.
The gap between women in high-income and low-income countries nearly doubled between 2020 and 2021.
Women in 2021 were more stressed, worried, angry, and sad than they were in 2020 – or at any point in the past decade.
About the Index
In 2020, Hologic launched the Hologic Global Women’s Health Index — a multiyear, comprehensive global survey about women’s health — to help fill a critical gap in what the world knows about the health and wellbeing of the world’s women and girls. Conducted annually, the survey provides the most timely, globally comprehensive data from womens' perspectives on their health and wellbeing.
