Women's health in Atlantic Canada: a statistical portrait  
http://www.acewh.dal.ca/eng/reports/colman%20statistical%20portrait.pdf

Illustrates the utility of a health determinants approach, both for improving population health and women's health and for reducing long-term health care costs. The report notes the highly interactive nature of the determinants of health, and points both to data limitations and the need for more research in the area. Presents statistical evidence to illustrate the need for strategic investments in several key determinants of health to improve women's health in Atlantic Canada and concludes by demonstrating that the Atlantic region receives far less than its fair share of health research funds, which must be dramatically increased if Atlantic Canadians are to learn about their particular health issues and determinants, and to target health promotion investments effectively in the region.
