The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how women access health care, as many in-person visits have been delayed or replaced with telehealth. Moving health care appointments online has been one necessary example of slowing the spread of COVID-19, but it has presented challenges for women living with chronic conditions.


HealthyWomen wanted to better understand the experiences of women living with chronic conditions such as chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, and more. Between May 18 and June 12, we surveyed over 300 women, and asked them about their ability to access prescription medicines and in-clinic treatments.

As the pandemic continues to rage and health care continues to change its model of delivery, it's critical for decision-makers to understand the implications for vulnerable patient populations.
