Includes bibliographical references. --- Review, Network Winter/Spring 2004: Canadian women live longer than men, but that doesn’t mean they’re healthier. A new report shows that both younger and older women are actually at a higher risk than men for many serious health problems. This report, a collaborative project between the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI), Health Canada and academic institutions across Canada, provides gender relevant analyses and considerations for health policy and program development, based on currently available national secondary health data. It focuses on "key" women's health issues and builds on the literature and presents data from national administrative and survey databases. The report highlights gender differences and identifies disparities in the distribution of determinants of health, health behaviours, health outcomes, health care utilization as well as vulnerable subgroups of women. The report attempts to remedy the current lack of health information focussing on gender and women in particular, and provides a baseline of data from which a comprehensive, gender sensitive national women's health surveillance system can be built.
