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. The office 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 NWHW.

NWHW is a week-long health observance that kicks off on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 13 and ends Saturday, May 19, 2012. NWHW seeks to partner with public sector women's health-related organizations to help educate women about improving their physical and mental health and preventing disease. With the 2012 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.
