Transcript I t • Require by law the reporting of significant adverse reactions noted by physicians or by the manufacturers of drugs, devices and cosmetics. Congress should appropriate funds for increased research on safe, alternative forms of contraception, particularly male contraception. Research to identify the risks of present forms of contraception and estrogen- based drugs should be given higher priority. Outreach programs should be established by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to identify and provide services for victims of hazardous drug therapy. The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare should provide additional funds for alcohol and drug abuse research and treatment centers designed to meet the special needs of women. Federal and State governments should encourage fair representation of women on all Federal, State and private health policy and planning bodies. Congress should appropriate funds to establish and support a network of community-based health facilities to offer low cost, reproductive health services. The President should appoint a special commission to conduct a national investigation of conditions in nursing homes and mental institutions and propose standards of care. Congress should appropriate funds to encourage more women to enter the health professions and Congress should allocate funds only to those health professions schools whose curricula are clearly non-sexist. The Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare should undertake a special investigation of the increase in surgical procedures such as hysterectomy, Caesarean section, mastectomy and forced sterilization. 5& HOMEMAKERS The Federal Government and State legislatures should base their laws relating to marital property, inheritance, and domestic relations on the principle that marriage is a partnership in which the contribution of each spouse is of equal importance and value. The President and Congress should support a practical plan of covering homemakers in their own right under social security and facilitate its enactment. 15
