Abstract
This letter to the editor is addressing some of the shortcomings and limitations of a recently published article in the Crescent journal of Medical and Biological Sciences titled "Women's Health and Status in Kurdistan Region of Iraq: A Review" by Shabila and Al-Hadithi. The review failed to mention the progresses that have been made in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq in the last decades. In addition, there was little mention of mental health in the article, while accessing effective and culturally appropriate mental health services is one of the biggest challenges that Kurdish women face in the KRI. We agree that for the health of women in the Kurdish region to advance it is important to document systematically their status. Such reports and reviews must conscientiously and deliberately try to capture the depth and scope of women"s health status to help public health, medical, and political leaders make progress towards that goal.
