The Source/ La Source

The Source  assists researchers, policy makers, health planners, and students identify sources of women’s health data, reports, and reviews. The Source provides introductory sex- and gender-based analyses (SGBA) on prominent topics in women’s health, followed by links to provincial, national, and international data sources, reports, and reviews.

 The Source is organized into three categories: Health Status, Health Determinants, and Health Services. Health status refers to the data on the presence of disease, disability, well-being, and mortality of women. Health Determinants are factors that influence women’s health and well-being, that can affect not only women’s health status, but also the way in which women access health services. Finally, Health Services includes indicators that reflect the use, accessibility, appropriateness, and quality of the health care system in meeting the needs of women.

La Source est un centre de ressources virtuel donnant accès à des sources de données, des rapports et des documents d’analyse disponibles en français sur la santé des Canadiennes. Ces ressources proviennent du gouvernement fédéral, des gouvernements provinciaux et territoriaux et de différentes organisations. La Source fait connaître le corpus de recherche existant en français sur la santé des femmes au Canada.
