Women are being encouraged to share their experiences of the health and care system via a call for evidence aimed at improving healthcare for women.
Launching to coincide with International Women’s Day, the call for evidence will form the basis of a landmark government-led Women’s Health Strategy, to improve the health and wellbeing of women across England and place women’s voices at the centre of their care.
By better understanding women’s experiences, the government can ensure key parts of the health service are meeting women’s needs as they should be.
The six core-themes included in the call for evidence are:
- Placing women’s voices at the centre of their health and care
- Improving the quality and accessibility of information and education on women’s health
- Ensuring the health and care system understands and is responsive to women’s health and care needs across the life course
- Maximising women’s health in the workplace – deepening our understanding of how women’s health issues can affect their workforce participation and outcomes, both with regards to female
- Ensuring that research, evidence and data support improvements in women’s health
- Understanding and responding to the impacts of COVID-19 on women’s health.
