Abstract: In these unprecented times, healthcare in acute care setting has focused on treatment and reducing the transmission of COVID-19.
Healthcare services across the globe have been pushed to breaking point: forced to suspend services to meet the immediate healthcare needs of the population and curb morbidity and mortality rates.
Although this is deemed a necessity during a pandemic, the long-term effect on womens well-being is unknown.
Women can be extremely vulnerable during times of global crisis
Many primary healthcare services considered essential in the prevention of illness, including regular breast and sexual and reproductive screenings, have been forced to cease or substantially reduce service provision, potentially leaving women without access to regular wellness care.
