The All Party Parliamentary Group On Menopause
Promoting and Supporting Women going through the Menopause and Challenging current policy in Parliament
The APPG on Menopause was created by Parliamentarians to provide a platform to tackle the lack of understanding around Menopause amongst policymakers, the public and employers. The Group also provides a platform in the heart of Parliament that highlights the issues and challenges around Menopause that deserve attention, as well as acting as a forum for discussion.
APPG Launches ‘Manifesto for Menopause’ on World Menopause Day 2023, calling for free NHS menopause checks for women at 40.
A year since the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Menopause launched its hard-hitting inquiry report, the Group is calling on all Political Parties to commit to the following 7 reforms ahead of the next General Election.
An overview of APPG’s reforms includes:
- Menopause Health Check at 40
- National Formulary for HRT
- Incentivising GP menopause diagnosis
- Mandated menopause action plans in large companies
- Licensing of female-specific testosterone
- More funding for menopause research
- Review and improve specialist care provision
