Health Services Utilization
Availability of and access to quality health services
directly affects all aspects of women’s health. For women
with 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, use of medications, and use of various services,
such as preventive care, dental care, hospitals, and mental health
services. The contribution of HRSA to women’s health across
the country is highlighted as well.
