Ontario women’s health strategy
The Social Development Council of Cornwall and Area and Echo: Improving Women’s Health in Ontario are pleased to invite you to participate in a conversation about the Ontario Women’s Health Strategy. This is one of several events being hosted across Ontario to share the strategy and engage stakeholders.
Together we will discuss the current state of women’s health in Ontario and the need for a women’s health strategy. The strategy (currently in draft) has identified four priority areas for action: improving access to services and addressing bar- riers; integrating services using a women-centred approach; improving life circumstances for vulnerable women and adding accountability and planning mechanisms, particularly around the use of sex and gender based analysis, to improve quality of care.
We are eager to hear your stories about women’s health and social well-being and invite you to provide your views on the draft strategy. We would like to engage you in conversation about how the strategy can be supported and used in your community toward improving women’s health and social well-being in Ontario.
The event will be on June 24 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm in program room 1 and 2 at the Cornwall Public Library. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided. We actively support inclusion. When you register, please also advise us of inclusion needs, such as signing, support for childcare and transportation. Our event facility is wheelchair accessible. Please RSVP by Friday, June 18 to Melanie Mayer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-930-0211. To help us make arrangements for inclusion needs, please respond as early as possible. We hope you will join us!
