SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The OWH was established in 1991 to improve the health of American women by advancing and coordinating a comprehensive women's health agenda throughout HHS. This program has two goals: Development and implementation of model programs on women's health; and leading education, collaboration, and coordination on women's health. The program fulfills its mission through competitive contracts and grants to an array of community, academic, and other organizations at the national and community levels. National educational campaigns provide information about the important steps women can take to improve and maintain their health, such as National Women's Health Week.

National Women's Health Week is a week long health observance that kicks off on Mother's Day and seeks to educate women about improving their physical and mental health and preventing disease. With the 2010 theme “It's Your Time,” OWH will focus on encouraging women to make their health a top priority and take simple steps for a longer, healthier and happier life.
