White Paper

A gender-based approach to health funding:

One path toward greater economic empowerment for women

Women across Canada face barriers to full economic empowerment. One of these barriers is women’s health issues which require time off work, hindering career development.

This white paper, co-authored by CANFib (Canadian Women with Fibroids), Women’s Health Coalition (WHC), Women’s Health Initiative Network (WHIN), and Allergan Inc., outlines and recommends a gender-based approach to public health funding for women to have better treatment access, allowing them to contribute fully and successfully to the Canadian economy.
