Florida Ranks 35th in the Nation for Women’s Health & Well-Being

New report shows wide disparities by race and ethnicity for chronic health issues such as diabetes and AIDS

A new county-level analysis of the health status of women in Florida, released by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) in partnership with the Florida Women’s Funding Alliance (FWFA), finds that women in Florida have higher rates of AIDS and diabetes, slightly more days per month of poor mental health, and lower access to health insurance coverage than women in the United States overall. The report recommends policies that could address health disparities for women of color, increase the supply of quality mental healthcare providers, and support those with health issues and their caregivers through paid family and medical leave and paid sick days.

Florida overall received a C- on IWPR’s Health & Well-Being Composite Index—composed of nine health indicators that provide a basis for ranking and grading each state in the nation—but the report finds wide disparities in women’s status by county and by race and ethnicity.
