Women’s health remains in crisis, even as countries around the world recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Billions of women are not receiving needed testing, their emotional health is getting worse, and nearly a billion women are living with daily physical pain.
Other Global Findings:
More women said they are in pain now than three years ago. Nearly a billion women — about 1 in 3 worldwide — said they spent a lot of the previous day in physical pain.
Fewer women are able to afford housing. Although numbers have remained stable over the past three years, the percentage of women struggling to afford shelter has increased by nearly half in the past decade.
Many young women don’t feel safe. More than 4 in 10 women aged 15 to 24 said they do not feel safe walking alone at night in the area where they live.
