Abstract

Quality in women's health care has been assessed with preventive measures such as mammograms and pap smears, and obstetrical measures, such as prenatal care. Although awareness about sex and gender differences among researchers, health professionals, and women themselves has grown dramatically over the last 10 years, health care policy and medical education have not been influenced to any significant degree. Sex and gender differences have not been developed for a wider range of services, such as diagnosis and treatment of acute or chronic conditions, outside of reproductive health. This article reviews contemporary women's health issues and discusses the need for collaboration among multiple stakeholder groups within the health care industry to address quality in women's health care.
