Health Services Utilization

Availability of and access to quality health care services directly affects all aspects of women’s health. For women who have poor health status, disabilities, poverty, lack of insurance, and limited access to a range of health services, preventive treatment and rehabilitation can be critical in preventing disease and improving quality of life.

This section presents data on women’s health services utilization, including data on insurance coverage, usual source of care, satisfaction with care, use of medication, and use of various services, such as preventive care, HIV testing, and mental health services. The contribution of HRSA to women’s health across the country is highlighted, as well.
