The BC Government has been hosting want they call a Conversation on Health (Link removed - No longer exists) with the residents of BC. In response, a coalition of community groups called the Women's Health Community Advisory Committee has released a report about women's health that calls on the BC government to go beyond medical issues and fund a range of social services. The report, Conversation on Women's Health (in PDF) calls on the government to increase welfare rates and minimum wage, build social housing and women-only shelters, and fund more medical services.
