Advancing health equity for women 55 years and older means creating awareness and advocating for change in language and policies that diminish the importance of on-going, preventative women’s healthcare beyond the reproductive season.
Our policy initiatives are focused on 3 main areas:
- Revising Medicare access for annual women’s exams from every two years to each year
- Expanding data collection and reporting to include women 55 years and older with respective to sexual health, communicable diseases and quality of life, social determinants of health
- Establishing primary care focused on women’s health and aging
