Speaking from the heart!

In addition, the Queen pointed out that "the digital divide deserves a separate mention, which is also a gender gap. The figures are there and they show that women are in a very unfavorable situation, especially in low and middle income countries ... this means, and it is a very fine line, between being excluded or not from access to health services," she continued.
