As women, we know that our health can often be disregarded, overlooked, and under researched. That’s why it’s important we use our voice to take part in the Women’s Reproductive Health Survey!
The UK government has launched a new survey to gather women’s experiences of reproductive health. The survey is open to all women and those assigned female at birth living in England, aged 16-55 years.
It will cover a wide range of topics, including:
The survey also asks questions about women’s experiences of accessing healthcare and support for reproductive health issues.
The data collected from the survey will be used to better understand our experiences and take active steps to make a positive difference for future generations.
Why is the Women’s Reproductive Health Survey important?
Our reproductive health is an important part of our overall health and well-being. However, many women experience challenges and barriers to accessing reproductive health care and support.
In 2022, the government appointed Professor Dame Lesley Regan as Women’s Health Ambassador for England. Since then, a Women’s Health Strategy has been announced to close the gender health gap over the next 10 years.
This survey is a chance for women to share their experiences and to help the government to improve reproductive health services for all.
