Maritime Centre for Excellence in Women's Health


From the website: "The Maritime Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (MCEWH) is the dynamic interaction of community, academic and government representatives from three provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Dalhousie University is the administrative host of the MCEWH and the IWK Grace Health Centre houses the Centre....The MCEWH will focus on investigating the determinants of women's health across the lifespan, taking into account the experiences of women as individuals, groups and populations. The priorities of the two initial research programs are women's perception of determinants of health and the determinants of health of marginalized women living in poverty. The Centre will also address three crosscutting themes: the meaning of health from women's perspective; the determinants of health; and dimensions of women's health status."
