Political Economy of the Middle East
Health is a kind of human capital as well as an input to producing other forms of human capital. Being unhealthy depresses the ability to work productively and/or the ability and incentives to invest in human capital. Consequently, health education is a major key that is designed to help women and communities, in general, improve their health, by increasing their knowledge or influencing their attitudes. A community-based study of a random sample of 497 Emirati women aged 30–64 years attending primary health-care centers in the Emirate of Dubai was conducted. The proposed study investigated the Emirati women's knowledge about and attitudes toward menopause and menopause Hormone Replacement Theory (HRT). This study added more information about Emirati menopausal women to the limited menopause research in the Arab world and specifically in the UAE. This will enable the delivery of better health education based on increased awareness of health issues which enables health-care policymakers to create and formulate a health-care policy that further increases awareness and has the potential to enhance menopausal women’s quality of life and therefore reach their full potential at work.
