Abstract / Summary
Report presented by Senora Agnes Chagas, Observer from the Pan American Health Organization: Opportunity of Collaboration of the Latin American woman in health programs This report is part of a series of documents from the thirteenth assembly of the Inter-American Commission of Women (Comisión Interamericana de Mujeres (CIM)). The topic of the thirteenth conference was women’s civil and political rights in the Americas. All the documents from this conference focus on various aspects of this topic from women’s suffrage to women’s education. This report by Agnes Chagas of the Pan American Health Organization stressed the need for Latin American women to participate in health programs such as prenatal care and periodic exams. Chagas argued that although women had always been involved in promoting the social welfare of countries, they now needed to take on more permanent roles in their countries as nurses. The nursing profession, according to Chagas, should be recognized as an important and necessary profession for women.
