Women, Accessibility, and Healthcare — a Global Perspective
The average prevalence rate of disability in the female population 18 years and older is 19.2 percent, compared to 12 percent for males, representing about 1 in 5 women. Girls and women of all ages with any form of disability are generally among the more vulnerable and marginalized, facing significantly more difficulties in attaining adequate housing, health, education, vocational training, and employment. Organon’s work to ensure women’s well-being includes empowering women with disabilities through access to healthcare and better living conditions.
