A recent report shows that female veterans are getting inadequate healthcare in nearly 1/3 of VA clinics. Speak out:
More than 155,000 women in America’s armed services have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2002. But as these distinguished women return home, they are finding a veterans health care system better equipped to deal with the needs of men. A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators introduced the Women Veterans Health Care Improvement Act of 2008 (S.2799) to provide for the unique needs of our female veterans. The legislation will authorize programs to improve care for Military Sexual Trauma (MST), increase research on the current barriers to care, and expand women veterans staff positions at the VA. Urge your Senator to give our women veterans the specialized care they deserve by supporting this bill!
