September 2023
MWNUK  responded to the  call for evidence from the Women and Equalities Committee  inquiry into women’s reproductive health and the challenges that women face when they are being diagnosed and treated for these conditions. The inquiry  also wanted to understand disparities that exist in the diagnosis and treatment, and the impact of women’s experiences on their health and lives. Some of the recommendations made by MWNUK include:

In order to improve services and raise standards of care, it is essential that women’s voices and experiences (particularly Muslim/ racialised minority women) inform the development and delivery of health care services.
Effective communication with healthcare providers is essential for women to feel heard, understood, and involved in their treatment.
Whilst the women’s health strategy long term plan aims to improve women’s health over the next ten years nevertheless to tackle the barriers faced by BAME Women with gynaecological and urogynecological conditions we recommend that an impendent specialist working groups should be setup to develop a robust and detailed health strategy for specialist group such as those with protected characteristics.
