A report produced by the Women's Health Community Advisory Committee, a committee made up of 5 organizations in the Lower Mainland. The report was produced after the Conversation on Women's Health, an event held on the International Day of Action for Women's Health, May 28 2007. The event included 3 conversations, on "Quality Housing and a Living Income," "What Health Services do you Need?" and "The Social Determinants of Health: The Issues and Solutions." The report produced after the day of conversations with women from the community included 28 recommendations for the BC government, as well as a breakdown of the results of a questionnaire complementing the event, with questions for women about their health.
