Reproductive Health Needs and Organization of Care for Women and Gender-Diverse Veterans: Trends Over Time

by Kristin Haeger, MPH, MAT ; Discussant: Amanda Johnson, MD, FACOG ; Jodie Katon, PhD, MS
Seminar date: 5/15/2023

Description: Reproductive and sexual health (RSH) is a core component of comprehensive health care and plays a critical role in enabling people to enjoy life, remain healthy, and actively contribute to their communities. As the number of women and gender-diverse Veterans using VA health care grows, VA continues to build capacity to meet the RSH care needs of these Veterans. This presentation will summarize findings from the State of Reproductive Health Report Vol 2, which was produced by the VA Office of Women’s Health. The report examines trends over time in the RSH needs of women and gender-diverse Veterans, including variation by age, race/ethnicity, and rurality. Findings also include changes in availability and organization of RSH care services in VHA over time. Implications for policy and practice will be discussed. Target Audience: Health services and clinical researchers, clinicians, and policymakers
