The CWHN is a network of individuals and organizations from across Canada who believe that health is a human right that eludes many women because of poverty, politics and dwindling resources for health and social services. The CWHN is committed to enhancing women’s health in Canada by facilitating information sharing, and building regional and national links among organizations and individuals who care about women’s health.
Our programs offer easy access to existing health information and resources, as well as newly produced health materials specific to women’s concerns. The CWHN also encourages community-based participatory research and provides forums for critical debate on women’s health research and policy issues. We operate in English and French, and strive to provide materials in accessible formats.
