Though this is an overview of Australian women's health it is relevant to Canadian women in many ways. As is pointed out the commonalities of experience in industrialized settings are far greater than their local cultural differences. The papers are organized to address three sets of issues. The first two papers are concerned with health services available in the community for Australian womne, and to the health status of the majority of those women. The three papers that follow are concerned with minority populations. Margaret Kelaher and colleagues describe their community-based research with women from indigenous communities in Queensland who share a history of persistent racism, institutional and interpersonal violence, and neglect. The final two papers in this selection widen our definitional lens of women's health as they further explore the social context of health and illness. Women's understanding of stress and how they relate this to their health problems as well as the impact of domestic violence on women's mental health lead to suggestions of the importance of taking into account personal, social and cultural factors to improve women's health outcomes.

Describes the importance of gender analysis in health and the negative consequences seen to have resulted from a lack of consideration for sex and gender differences in health research and studies, as well as in clinical practice. Method: The research team reviewed a vast international literature on gender, sex, health, women's health, development and medicine. In addition, the team interviewed thirty-two key informants across four countries who are specialists in aspects of health research. Conclusion: The clear development of a focus for women's health research within the evolving CIHR is needed to correct the uneveness of the evidence base, attract more researchers to the speciality and encourage a comprehensive set of variables to be included across the entire field of health research. Most importantly, it will provide better health outcomes for Canadian women and girls and their families.

Reports findings on the idea of "formal" partnerships between universities and community groups. Found that often the activites associated with the creation and ongoing functioning of these formal partnerships are not bridging the gap but perhaps even widening it.
