The Initiative serves as a clearinghouse for women’s health information, including maternal and child health, breast and cervical cancers, osteoporosis, menopause, heart disease, smoking, behavioral health, substance abuse, domestic violence, teenage pregnancy, sexual assault, and improving rural and ethnic health disparities.
