Regina Women's Concerns

If you are women, sometimes you must be concerned about your health in some ways. What should you do? Come to your family doctor and ask for advices? Since most of family doctors are male, that is not a comfortable way. You want to share your matter with other sisters, but you do know where are those who are willing discuss with you about anything related to women’s health. Well, here comes to PWHCE.

Prairie Women’s Health Center of Excellence (PWHCE) is one of the Centres of Excellence for Women’s Health supported by the Bureau of Women's Health and Gender Analysis of Health Canada. The Centres are dedicated to improving the health status of Canadian women by supporting policy-oriented and community-based research and analysis on the social and other determinants of women’s health.

PWHCE’s goal is to improve the health of women in Manitoba and Saskatchewan in particular by making the health system and social systems more responsive to women’s and girls’ health and well being.

Health is more than just the absence of disease. PWHCE is committed to fostering a better understanding of what determines women's health by generating new knowledge, providing policy advice, analyzing data and resources on women’s health, communicating knowledge, building and strengthening networks of individuals and organizations. PWHCE is associated and linked with organizations, individuals and policy makers at community, regional and national levels.
