How will proposed changes to health care law affect women’s health in the United States?
A new article in Women’s Health Issues explores this issue. In The Risk of Remaining Silent: Addressing the Current Threats to Women’s Health, the authors assess how changes to the Affordable Care Act, insurance coverage for contraception, Planned Parenthood, and additional Department of Health and Human Services programs might affect health care for women.
Dr. Claire Brindis from the University of California, San Francisco is the first author in this paper. The George Washington University’s Dr. Amita Vyas is the editor for Women’s Health Issues and is also the program director of the Maternal and Child Health Program in GW’s Milken Institute School of Public Health.
