National Women's Health Week
While Women's World Health Initiative is raising awareness and funds on behalf of women across the world, we recognize that every woman--living in rural Africa or urban California--deserves to be healthy.
National Women's Health Week is a week-long health observance happening one month from now. It's coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women's Health (OWH). National Women’s Health Week empowers women to make their health a top priority.
OWH is encouraging women to make appointments with their doctors and take small steps to becoming healthier...like answering questions like these: Do you know how often you should get your blood pressure checked? How about when you should get your next tetanus shot? Mammogram? Pap test? Check this chart out from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to find out what type of health checkups you and your loved ones need, and get a head start on National Women's Heatlh Week--and your path to good health!
