The British Columbia Centre for Excellence for Women’s Health (BCCEWH) is a centre of innovation and creativity promoting a women-centred approach to the health of girls and women. The organization is located at the BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre in Vancouver.
- A gender focus is employed in Further Advancing the Health of Girls and Women (2008), a strategy to promote women’s health in British Columbia. The ten-year strategy was developed in collaboration with women’s health organizations and public health agencies. The strategy is based on three key values: 1) Place women at the centre; 2) Recognize diversity; and 3) Promote equity.
