Special Journal Supplement on Women's Health

In 2004, VA's Office of Research and Development put forward a VA women's health research agenda, spanning biomedical/laboratory, clinical sciences, rehabilitation, and health services research that has led to a growing research portfolio. In fact, more research on the health of women Veterans was published from 2004 through 2008 than in the previous 25 years combined. Furthering these efforts, VA's Health Services Research and Development Service (HSR&D) with supplemental support from the VA Women Veterans Health Strategic Health Care Group, funded a special issue in the journal Women's Health Issues. The issue includes 18 peer-reviewed manuscripts summarizing health services research findings about women Veterans and women in the military, framed in the context of informing evidence-based practice and policy. The articles are complemented by commentaries from HSR&D and the Women Veterans Health Strategic Health Care Group leadership as well as an editorial from the Editor-in-Chief of the journal. All articles are accessible, regardless of subscription status, and may be accessed at
