Supporting our women Veterans
Life after the military can be difficult for all those who have served, but for the 1.8 million female Veterans in America, there are unique (and often unrecognized) challenges to consider. This is one of the many reasons why VA works tirelessly to improve the state of women Veterans.
Part of our efforts include collaborating with Women Veterans Interactive (WVI), whose mission is to address the challenges women Veterans face through programs that cover health and wellness, peer support, workforce development and homelessness prevention. Recently, we worked together on the “State of Women Veterans” social media campaign, which ran from September through November of last year.
Another way VA supports women Veterans is by offering a wealth of career opportunities while giving preference to Veterans in the hiring process. What’s more, our Women’s Health team provides high-quality medical and psychosocial care to this growing patient population. It takes professionals from a wide range of specialties to drive our daily success. And together, we’re aiming to be a leader in women’s health, thus raising the standard of care for all women.
