Women's Health

HSR&D's Women's Health portfolio focuses on research that advances our understanding of the health care needs of women veterans and ensures the delivery of effective, equitable, comprehensive quality health care to the growing number of women veterans. HSR&D research addresses the health care needs of women veterans, including those that are unique, more prevalent or different in women veterans or specific groups of women veterans, or specifically related to circumstances of military service. This research provides the foundation for translational and implementation research on women's health at VA, leading to the development of innovative strategies and methods to expand research as well as accelerate the impacts of research on the health and health care of women veterans. Research should build on the current evidence and establish a foundation that will improve access to care, facilitate system changes, and enhance VA's ability to meet the needs of women veterans. Women's health is an HSR&D priority, as described in the current Program Announcement of HSR&D Priorities.
