(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #225 - Health: Gynecology in danger (fr) [machine translation]
Sun, 31 Mar 2013 09:38:30 +0300
Gynecology is a French specificity. Thanks to her, the life expectancy of women has
improved significantly: early detection of cancer in women using contraceptives
individualized ... but she is still in danger. ---- Too few jobs are open in gynecology:
thirty in 2012 against one hundred and thirty in 1986! If this number does not increase
significantly in the coming years is the eventual disappearance of gynecology in France.
The possibility for women to entrust their gynecological specialist is trained to do and
questioned, and with it the prevention. ---- Yet it is through this monitoring that the
number of cervical cancer of the uterus was divided by four in twenty years, mortality
halved and there is a decrease in mortality for breast cancer with the best survival rate.
It is also thanks to gynecology and women can receive adequate contraception.
What are the policies?
The Defence Committee of the gynecology was received Monday, October 8th at the Ministry
of Health, where he expressed his extreme concern about the health of women. For the
moment no increase in the number of medical gynecologists are planned. Again socialists
continue the policy right and sacrifice the health of women hiding behind the Regional
Health Agencies (ARS) created by the government Sarko to manage and administer health [ 1 ].
It is they who are in charge of the internal number of positions, from the recognition of
needs. What would be a technical and not political! While it is nonetheless a political
will that not give the health of a substantial budget.
A decline in social
The ARS and 0.5 consider medical gynecologist for women 5000 in Auvergne, or 0.8 medical
gynecologist for 5000 women in Ile-de-France are sufficient, according to the
recommendations of the College of Physicians. However, according to the National
Observatory of the demographics of the health professions, the current does not allow more
than a quarter of women of childbearing age to have access to see their specialist [ 2 ].
According to the INED and Inserm this time, about 20-24, "the gynecological has also
declined among young women: in 2010, 12.2% of them reported having no monitoring usual,
against 6.9% in 2000. "
And the situation is likely to worsen, as almost half of the gynecologists (48%) will
retire in the next five years. Another social regression for women!

created the Regional Health Agencies (art. 118). They are the pillars of the reform of the
