Launch of a Women’s Health Plan for Wales by the Women’s Health Wales Coalition


On 28 May 2022, International Day of Action for Women’s Health, the Women’s Health Wales Coalition published a report to achieve equal healthcare for everyone in Wales.

For the past year, we have been working as part of the coalition, made up of over 60 charities, patient representatives, clinicians, and professional bodies to draw up a plan to help end health inequalities experienced by women, girls, and those assigned female at birth.

The plan includes a range of physical and mental health conditions and issues which might affect this population at different points in their lives and makes a series of recommendations to improve their health, lives, and wellbeing - both now and for future generations. Key recommendations include improved access to specialist services, improved data collection, support for sustainable co-production of services, and enhanced training for health and care professionals.

The Welsh Government has now committed to drafting a plan. The plan needs to be ambitious and it needs to be co-produced with coalition members, patients, and the public.
