Echo and leading health stakeholders release a Framework for improving women’s health in Ontario

Women are the primary managers of family health.  Women are the most frequent users of the health care system.  Women make up the majority of the health care workforce.  Therefore, taking steps to improve women’s health through earlier, less costly interventions and more streamlined care processes is essential to supporting sustainability in Ontario’s health care system. Ensuring women stay healthy directly benefits women themselves, and it supports the broader community’s health needs.

Echo and its partners invite you to read Ontario’s first Women’s Health Framework, which sets out recommendations aimed at improving and maximizing the health of all women in the province.
