Welcome to the Women North Network

The Women North Network (WNN) fosters:

  • Information among northern women,
  • Participation in current studies,
  • Access to health related research,
  • Taking an active role in creating change in the health system and policy initiatives.

The WNN network brings women together to share information and develop joint health-related research, action, and policy initiatives. The WNN arose in 2000 from the Women North Project, a community-based study that gives a voice to northern women and their health needs at an individual, organizational and community level.  A project of Northern FIRE the WNN aims to cultivate community development and research activities that explore and address the promotion women’s health in Northern British Columbia.
