New Report Finds Lack Of Privacy In Female Veteran Health Care

Soldiers in their third trimester, the last three months of pregnancy, perform the designated stretches outlined by the Pregnancy Postpartum Physical Training program Feb. 19, at Fort Hood, Texas.
In 2014, a study by the VA Inspector General found that 20.4% of community-based outpatient clinics run by the Veterans Health Administration failed to provide adequate privacy for female veterans.

That number dropped to 14.3% in 2015, but still has a ways to go, according to a new report released June 19.

The findings come amid rising concerns from veterans service organizations that more needs to be done to ensure adequate services are available for women who rely on the VA for health care.
