In This Episode:

In the heart of Silicon Valley, known for its tech success and wealth, healthcare is a big problem. One in four women who need help can't see a doctor regularly, leading to more ongoing health problems that go untreated. Mental health issues are horrible, 30% worse than the rest of the country, but only 15% of these women get the help they need. Also, only 40% get the reproductive health care they need, which leads to more unexpected pregnancies than in nearby areas. These facts are more than just statistics; these women urgently need more support.

Health Problems of Underserved Women in Silicon Valley:
  • Access to Care: About 25% of underserved women in wealthy Silicon Valley lack a regular doctor, leading to more untreated long-term health issues.
  • Mental Health Disparities: Mental health problems are 30% more common among Silicon Valley's underserved women than nationwide, but only 15% get regular treatment.
  • Reproductive Health Services: Only 40% of underserved Silicon Valley women get proper reproductive health services, causing a 20% increase in unintended pregnancies.
