Menopause care inequalities, with Dr Nighat Arif and Dr Kuki Avery

Did you know a huge number of women face more barriers than others when it comes to receiving vital menopause care? GPs Dr Nighat Arif and Dr Kuki Avery join Liz on this episode to explore inequalities in menopause healthcare, and what can be done to make it truly accessible to all.

Dr Nighat reveals the barriers to menopause care faced by ethnic minority women, such as being left out of clinical research and the conversations surrounding menopause, institutionalised racism, and generational trauma.

Dr Kuki discusses the menopause care hurdles that women with learning disabilities often come across, such as late and misdiagnosis, communication difficulties, and also being left out of research.
