VA Health Care: Improved Monitoring Needed for Effective Oversight of Care for Women Veterans, Accessible Version, Report to Congressional Requesters   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "In 2010, GAO [Government Accountability Office] found a number of weaknesses related to care for women veterans at VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] medical facilities. GAO was asked to update that study. This report examines (1) the extent that VA medical centers complied with requirements related to the environment of care for women veterans and VHA [Veterans Health Administration]'s oversight of that compliance; (2) what is known about the availability of VHA medical providers who can provide sex-specific care for women veterans at VA facilities; and (3) VHA's efforts to provide and monitor access to sex-specific care for women veterans through Choice [Veterans Choice Program]."
