Club launched to facilitate women in 40s

The Club 40, an exclusive club for women in the age group of 40, was launched here by the Pakistan Menopause Society in collaboration with the Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) in a graceful ceremony held at a local hotel on Monday.

The club was introduced for the very first time in Pakistan to address the issues of women, who face or are at the risk of facing menopause. The initiative was a brainchild of Pakistan Menopause Society President Rubina Hussain who is also the founding president of the club. While addressing the inaugural ceremony, she said that the club was formed to address the issues of women from the Asia Pacific region. The problems of Asian women are quite different from the women of western world and unfortunately methods of western world are followed in our countries, she added.
