BHAWD’s Vision:


BHAWD envisions a time in which women of all abilities have equal access to respectful treatment and high quality women’s health care

BHAWD envisions a time when all barriers to women’s health care - whether physical, mechanical, statutory, attitudinal or other, are removed so that all women are equally considered and served by the medical community.

BHAWD envisions a time in which medical practitioners are educated to understand that all women deserve equal treatment and that women with disabilities have special needs that must be addressed.

BHAWD envisions a time when medical practitioners and women with disabilities understand that disability is one piece of the overall health picture and that women’s health needs are broader than any disabling condition.

BHAWD envisions a time in which issues that affect women with disabilities are systematically and routinely included in research, health care, advocacy, and policy efforts.

BHAWD envisions a time when all women, including women with disabilities, will have the information and access to resources to obtain and advocate for their own health care and be seen as partners in their own health care.
