The number of active-duty women in the military has grown exponentially in recent years and is expected to continue to increase.

Did you know?

  • 17% of all active duty service members are women
  • The number of active duty servicewomen is expected to increase by 18,000 women per year over the next decade
  • Women are 28% more likely to leave the military than their male counterparts

But despite this increase in servicewomen, the military’s healthcare services are struggling to evolve and accommodate their unique needs. HealthyWomen’s Ready, Healthy & Able program aims to help address that problem and keep servicewomen healthy and fit for duty.
