Examines and reports on various research projects on immigration, refugee, and African Nova Scotian women in Atlantic Canada, sponsored by ACEWH, that have initiated a critical body of policy-based research on health needs by ethnic origin. Explores the major barriers between ethnic sub-populations and good health care, including language and communication barriers, cultural barriers, and the lack of medical research and knowledge on minority women's health needs and concerns.
