APA advocates for federal funding for women's health care, with a focus on preventing violence against women, improving mental health and ensuring reproductive health.
APA advocates to eliminate barriers to health and health care for all women. Research indicates that due to health inequities, women across various racial and ethnic groups, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women, women with disabilities and low-income women are bearing a disproportionate burden of disease; therefore, special attention is warranted for these populations.
Physical & Mental Health
APA is committed to achieving universal access to physical and mental health and substance use services. Health coverage is fundamental to reducing health disparities and promoting the just and equitable treatment of all segments of society.
