Priority Recommendations For Saskatchewan Communities
Report (English) PDF (573KB)
In June 2004, the Prairie Women's Health Centre of Excellence (PWHCE)
and the Centres of Excellence for Women's Health released the report
Rural, Remote and Northern Women's Health: Research and Policy Directions.
This was a comprehensive, national project on the health concerns of
women who live in rural, remote and northern Canada. As requested by
the community women involved in the project, a plain language community
kit was developed shortly afterwards. PWHCE also committed to providing
other follow-up to the research report and its recommendations. This
document is a record of the first community workshop.
In September 2004 PWHCE began working with rural women to develop a
process to carry forward the Report's recommendations. The Rural Women's
Health Workshop was held from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm on November 17, 2004
at the Christ Lutheran Church in Young, Saskatchewan. The purpose of
the workshop was to offer women the opportunity to become familiar with
the national Report's recommendations and determine follow-up action
for Saskatchewan. Eighteen women participated in the event. Some of
the women had participated in focus groups held in Young and in Yorkton
with rural and farm women conducted as part of the research for the
Rural, Remote and Northern Women's Health Report. New participants included
other rural women, Métis women and Francophone women.
