This section lists options that can be used to view responses Relationship between the Status & Educational Level of Women in Developing Countries & the Local Economic & Environmental Conditions The Status of Women & Economy The 21st century has witnessed the rise in recognition of women & their roles in the society. Women have been granted the freedom more than they had for the past centuries. Irrespective, they still suffer many inequalities & are less advantaged than men in almost all spheres of life. Moreover, this trend is very clear in developing nations. They are denied an equal access to economic freedom, education, health care, & the rights of decision making in sectors like politics, social situations, & commerce. In these countries, three quarters of all economic activities are done by men, but women only do 54 percent of the work. However, the 1995 United Nations Human Development Report also clarifies that "an approximate $16 trillion in worldwide output is currently 'invisible,' of which $11 trillion is estimated to be produced by women"[ CITATION Ale \l 1033 ] Today, countries have awaken to the realization that education is part & parcel of women development, & development to the society at large. It is the main component of human security when women are empowered.The report by the UNDP Human Development Report, summarizes that the population of Africa comprise 52 per cent of women. Women contribute more to economy in Africa than men. According to the report 75 percent of the agricultural produce is done by women, & they also contribute 60-82 percent of the food. However, only 10 percent of the incomes is credited to them. Furthermore, they possess a mere 1 per cent of the total assets of Africa. These figures indicate the tremendous impediments women in developing nations encounter on their way to gender equality. There has been great initiatives by governments, NGOs, & international development actors to bridge this disparity, regardless, the most of women in these nations are still consigned for informal roles & micro enterprises duties. Additionally, women still comprise the majority of temporary & part-time employee in developed nations. Subsequently, these working in informal sectors are prone to limited access to the education, political selections, land ownership, primary health care facilities, employee rights, & economic capital For instance, women in Southeast Asian countries have poor representation in the civil services, the government, & have a consistent disparity in education & employment opportunities. Albeit, many people accede that investing in the economic freedom of women is likely to reverse these drifts. Environmental Conditions & the Economy Pollutionis an inevitable figure in most of the developing nations. This poor environmental quality has detrimental effects both to the economy & the lifespan of people. It is sad that these effects of pollution are negatively reflected on the economy of the developing world, low productivity & high health care costs emanate from polluted environments. Disregard of the high costs pollution incurs, there are literally low levels of investment to enhance the quality of environments in these nations.[CITATION Olu \l 1033 ] Furthermore, developing countries are characterized by acute market failures reflected in poor access to credit & weak property rights. As such, environmental quality is likely going to be impaired since the expenses for making improvements in environmental quality are distorted. Since many businesses & individuals cannot access good loans, then they are incapable of making promising investments in environmental quality. In a similar thought, weak property rights means business owners have very little incentive they can use to build long-term investments like installation of energy saving technologies or tree planting initiatives since they are unsure is they will reap the paybacks from the investments.

The company that I work with currently has the system in place to capture the services that the RNs do, however if we do not document properly what was done, with what supplies, & place the appropriate nursing associate diagnosis into the EHRs that is used to capture the services, then our health care company does not get reimbursed for the supplies or services that we supply our patients. Chaimberlain College of Nursing (2015) states, nursing concepts & activities have to be integrated into a Clinical Information System (CIS) or Health Information System (HIS) by using a language. That language must speak to other languages in the system, such as finance. (CCN, 2015) As for the doctor office visits, if we were to get reimbursed for the service that was provided or if a referral to a specialty was needed or requested by the patient, the patient would need to be seen by his or her primary care provider to try & treat the patient to the best care that they can provide, if the treatments fail then a referral to a specialist would be appropriate & the service for the specialty would be reimbursed. Hebda & Czar 2013 indicates, "The burden of medical necessity falls on the performer of the service. Failure to do so will lead to a denial for reimbursement."(Hebda & Czar, 2013, Pg. 390) References Chamberlain College of Nursing. (2015). NR-361 Week 5: Information Systems in Healthcare.
