Presents the results of a 2010 survey on the physical and mental health status of 300 homeless people in Winnipeg. Found that women have quite different health care needs than men. For example, 15% had given birth while homeless, almost half of the women were victims of sexual assault, and 25% of the women had not had a Pap test in three years.
