Investigates the views of a wide range of Canadian women in advance of the 1996 Canada-USA Women's Health Forum. In order to shape the content of the Women's Health Forum with input from Canadian Women, Health Canada commissioned eleven focus groups of women from all walks of life to identify their needs, issues, priorities, and concerns about their health. This study's objectives are: to assess the level of understanding of the issues; to identify the current priorities in the area of women's health; to identify the key concerns for each of the issues identified by Health Canada; to identify what gaps there are in the issues addressed by the Forum agenda; to identify the sources of health information currently being received, and to provide an opportunity to help develop the agenda, deliberations, and possible conference outcomes.
