Prior to its closure in 2013, PWHCE served as a link among community, researchers and policy-makers. Staff, Board and associate members participated in community consultations and meetings, invited collaboration and worked with grass-roots agencies to conduct new research, share information, encourage policy change and improve women’s health.
