The feasibility study into the creation of a Women’s Health Network in Hamilton was a partnership between the YWCA of Hamilton, the North Hamilton Community Health Centre (NHCHC), and Civicplan. The study was made possible with the support of a Women’s College Hospital, Women’s Xchange grant. It was conducted to identify community interest in a Network and what directions and priorities it may take. The research was performed over a nine month period.
Two broad research questions guided the study and helped to frame the report. These were:
What health-related programs and services currently exist in Hamilton exclusively for women?
What level of interest/need is there for a Network, and in what form?
