Equality for women in healthcare consultation
July 26, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
Join the leader of the Women’s Equality Party to discuss what a healthcare system that sees and supports women could look like, with a particular focus on access to healthcare services and ending violence against women and girls.
VAWG is a health issue because of the mental and physical damage it causes; evidenced in the estimated cost of domestic violence to the health sector of £1.7 billion a year. Intersecting inequalities compound many women’s experiences of an unequal health system. Lesbian women, for example, experience poorer health outcomes compared to heterosexual women including depression, stress and anxiety, cancer, asthma and musculoskeletal issues.
