The Status of Women in North Carolina: Health and Wellness

Publication Date: June 2019 Click here to view full report 

The health and wellness of women in North Carolina has improved in some ways, yet not all women are equally benefiting from this progress. Wide disparities persist in disease and mortality rates and incidence of sexually transmitted infections by race and ethnicity, as well as by county. Ensuring that women can access the health care services they need – including for mental health and substance abuse – is vital to the health and well-being of women in North Carolina.

Additionally, women’s experiences of intimate partner violence show the detrimental impact this violence has on women in the state. The Status of Women in North Carolina: Health & Wellness is the second in a series of four publications that provide data and policy recommendations to improve North Carolina women’s status in several key areas.  CLICK TO CONTINUE

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
