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, limited financial resources, lack of insurance, and limited access to a range of health services, preventive treatment and rehabilitation can be critical in preventing disease and improving the quality of women’s lives.

This section presents data on women’s use of health services, including data on women’s insurance coverage, usual source of care, satisfaction with care, and use of various services, such as preventive care, HIV testing, hospitalization, and mental health services. A new addition to this section describes the use of home health and hospice care.
