Provides a statistical overview of women's health in the Atlantic provinces, an introduction to the work of the Maritime Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (MCEWH) and their research on women's health, a briefing on The Millennium Women's Health Partnership Project, and a call to action for Women's Health and Well-Being. The publication does not attempt to be a comprehensive analysis of women's health in the four Atlantic provinces. It focuses on selected key issues in women's health to illustrate the utility of gender-based analyses of health issues and the usefulness of a population-health approach based on the key determinants of health.

It concerns itself with users of home care as well as with providers, both paid and unpaid. It seeks to raise awareness of gender as a variable in developing and implementing public policy about home care and proposes that policy options be subjected to a systematic analysis of gender-based differences.
