The Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR) at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine released the 12th edition of our North Carolina Women’s Health Report Card on May 9, 2022. This document is a progress report on the health and health care needs of North Carolina’s 5+ million women.
Current areas of research targeted by the Center include prevention, cancers affecting women, chronic disease (including cardiovascular health, diabetes, and obesity), women’s mental health, and substance abuse. It is the only health report of its kind in North Carolina.
Carolina Demography collected the data found within this report. A complete list of data indicators and highlights from the report is available from CWHR.
Previous editions of the Women’s Health Report Card have been released biennially and tracked the state’s female health statistics in two year increments. The 2022 edition presents data from 2018-2022. Previous editions of the report card are also available for comparison.
