Grandmothers and women's health: from fragmentation to coherence.
There is a paucity of models that drive integrated research agendas, and coherent approaches to development and progress of knowledge about women's health. In this article, we review four major models of women's health, present conditions supporting more integrative and coherent models of women's health based on the recommendations by two international conferences, and address major paradoxes inherent in women's health areas. For integrative and coherent models of women's health, we propose to incorporate visions and insights of previous models in developing a more coherent model that includes three major components-integration, transition, and marginalization.
