The overriding goal of the Ontario Women’s Health Council (OWHC) is to improve the health of all Ontario women. To achieve this goal, the OWHC works to ensure that Ontario women have access to appropriate health care when, where and how they need it. The council also champions the accountability of society and the health-care system for the health of Ontario women, and is building Ontario’s research capacity in women’s health.
