While women comprise the largest segment of health workers, health consumers, and health decision-makers for their families and communities, it has often been difficult for women to make themselves heard. Women's Health focuses on women's health issues from multiple perspectives and draw upon research and practice that include both qualitative and quantitative methodologies in data collection and knowledge formation.

 

Women's Health incorporates work that has been produced from grass roots investigations of women's health issues and addresses specific health issues, diversity issues, and a variety of issues previously unexplored. In an effort to exemplify alternative forms of knowledge collection, and the importance of inclusiveness, diversity, and realism when understanding the various facets of women's health, Women's Health also highlights the work of women whose voices may not normally be heard or recognized?in a way that stretches beyond the traditional parameters of knowledge-sharing practices.
