More than 450,000 women veterans used Veterans Health Administration (VHA) services during 2015 alone. Despite effort to improve care for women veterans, many disparities still exist. Of particular concern are those disparities experienced by women veterans with PTSD and/or a history of military sexual assault. This study provides secondary data analyses of a qualitative study examining women veterans’ perceptions of the VA healthcare system.
