WOMEN in Hong Kong are well educated about sexually transmitted diseases but take little care of their general health, a survey revealed. The Report on Women's Health Survey, released by the Family Planning Association, surveyed 1,183 women aged between 15 and 60 in June last year. The scope of the survey included living style and habits; physical health; general emotional condition; level of satisfaction towards life; health care/physiological knowledge; and health care examination. While every woman agreed to the statement that ''for the sake of health, one should receive body check-ups regularly'' few had done so. Eighty-six per cent of women had heard of breast check-ups but only 27 per cent had had one in the past 12 months and 46 per cent had not considered having one. All but one per cent had heard of sexually transmitted diseases. More women knew that sexually transmitted diseases, vaginitis and osteoporosis could be prevented. Fewer knew about prevention of lung cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, hypertension and diabetes. Of the 16 per cent of women who had experienced unplanned pregnancies, more than half had felt pressure to have the baby. The occurrence of unplanned pregnancies was higher among women aged between 30 and 49 and those with lower education levels. One in five women paid not much or no attention to their psychological health and 14 per cent of women paid little or no attention to their physical health.
