Get a comprehensive overview of current women’s health data in the latest edition of the Women’s Health Data Book: A Profile of Women’s Health in the United States.
Available through the Menlo Park, CA-based Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation and the Washington, DC-based Jacobs Institute of Women’s Health, the book addresses social and economic factors and provides up-to-date information on chronic conditions, reproductive health, mental health, violence, health behaviors, and access to and quality of health services received by women. Information also is presented on disparities in health status and access to care among subgroups of women, and the information highlights the populations who are at greatest risk.
Also available are three new fact sheets that highlight the key findings from the data book, which include overall trends and emerging issues for women, data for women of color, and highlights for adolescents.
