Women's health is a priority population for AHRQ, meaning women have unique health care needs or issues that require special focus. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) supports research on all aspects of health care provided to women, including: enhancing the response of the health system to women's needs; understanding differences between the health care needs of women and men; understanding and eliminating disparities in health care ; and providing evidence to inform women in their health care decisions. This fact sheet focuses on findings in the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Reports, two of many AHRQ publications that address women's health.

Scope and Importance:Quality and disparities measures in health care for women are integrated throughout both reports. This document extracts and summarizes the measures in a single document. It is organized around the same framework as the larger NHQR and NHDR but collapses some components to provide a higher view. The reports describe health along the following components:
The components of effectiveness are organized around eight clinical areas. Naturally, some measures will cross components; for example, receipt of discharge instructions for heart failure is related to effectiveness of heart disease care as well as care coordination. For the purposes of this document, measures with clinical context are presented with the effectiveness measures. Other measure sets describe health care delivery and systems issues and are discussed together.
This document is intended to serve as an "index" so that readers can focus on women's health measures of interest and then refer to the primary reports for detailed information. New analyses of other measures are not included, but additional measures and data can be identified in the NHQR and NHDR appendix tables.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), total health care spending in the U.S. is 17.9% of its GDP, the highest in the World. Health share of GDP will continue its historical upward trend, reaching 19.5% of GDP by 2017.
Being a man or a woman has a significant impact on health, as a result of both biological and gender-related differences. The health of women and girls is of particular concern because, in many societies, they are disadvantaged by discrimination rooted in socio-cultural factors. For example, women and girls face increased vulnerability to HIV/AIDS.
Some of the socio-cultural factors that prevent women and girls to benefit from quality health services and attaining the best possible level of health include:
unequal power relationships between men and women
social norms that decrease education and paid employment opportunities
an exclusive focus on women’s reproductive roles
potential or actual experience of physical, sexual and emotional violence
While poverty is an important barrier to positive health outcomes for both men and women, poverty tends to yield a higher burden on women and girls’ health due to, for example, feeding practices (malnutrition) and use of unsafe cooking fuels (COPD).
Women's health issues include menstruation, contraception, maternal health, child birth, menopause and breast cancer. They can also include medical situations in which women face problems not directly related to their biology, for example gender-differentiated access to medical treatment.
According to the report, new subsidized insurance options, including a substantial expansion in eligibility for Medicaid and premium tax credits for people with incomes up to $92,200 for a family of four, will help ensure that nearly all women will have access to affordable, comprehensive health insurance. Among the five states where more than one quarter of women lacked coverage in 2009/10, uninsured rates are estimated to fall below 14 percent when the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented: in Texas, the uninsured rate is expected to drop from 30.3 percent in 2009/10 to 11.6 percent; in Florida from 26.2 percent to 9.9 percent; in Arkansas from 25.3 percent to 6.8 percent; in New Mexico from 25.3 percent to 13.3 percent; and in Nevada from 25.2 percent to 13.1 percent.
