Help shape the future of women's health in Hackney
A survey is being launched to ensure local sexual and reproductive health services are meeting the needs of women living, studying, and working in the City and Hackney.
The survey will cover important topics such as menstruation, contraception, pregnancy, menopause, sex and relationships and will give participants the option to answer the whole survey or topics they are interested in.
Launched by the City of London and Hackney Public Health team and Population Health Hub, with support from the North East London CCG, the survey will run until Monday 30 May 2022.
Women from all backgrounds and ages are encouraged to take part, including those who were described as female at birth and are now trans or non-binary, are aged 15-55, and who live, work, or study in the City of London or Hackney.
Women and trans and non-binary people who were described as female at birth often endure stigma and taboo relating to their health issues, which means that their needs may be overlooked or minimised. This can have a huge impact on all areas of their lives.
We want to ensure that women's voices are heard, and that their experiences help to shape local services designed to support them. This is why we are asking all eligible people to take part in this survey, to share their thoughts and insights with us. The aim is to improve health outcomes and quality of life for all, as well as to reduce health inequalities.
By entering the survey and providing an email address participants will be in with a chance to win one of three £50 vouchers in a prize draw.
