Within the Canadian healthcare context, very limited race-based data is collected within hospitals on communities of colour. These communities face unique challenges such as:
- Access to competent and culturally sensitive healthcare providers
- Financial barriers to treatment
- Limited access to community resources to manage common gynecological concerns such as pelvic pain, uterine fibroids, endometriosis and poly-cystic ovary syndrome
If you are struggling with any of these concerns our team at WombCare understands these system gaps can lead to negative health outcomes.
