Examines the burden of illness (overall health and well-being) experienced by Ontarians, and how it differs by sex, socioeconomic status, ethnicity and geography. By painting a picture of health inequities in the province, opportunities for improvement are identified and objective evidence is presented to inform priority setting and to provide a baseline from which to measure progress.

The POWER Study (Project for an Ontario Women's Health Evidence-based Report) is producing a comprehensive Women's Health Report to serve as an evidence-based tool for policy makers, providers and consumers in their efforts to improve health and reduce health inequities among the women and men of Ontario.

Provides critical information on patterns of disparities in care for women in Ontario that can be used to target improvement interventions. Care provided for reproductive and gynaecological health issues is deeply imbedded in social and cultural norms and may vary over time, socioeconomic status, across cultures and regionally. Because of the central role that pregnancy and childbirth plays in the lives of many women a substantial proportion of this chapter deals with indicators related to prenatal care, the processes and consequences of childbirth and postpartum care and outcomes. The remaining sections of the chapter report on abortion, hysterectomy for benign conditions and sexually transmitted infection rates.

The POWER Study is producing a Women's Health Report to serve as an evidence-based tool for policy makers, providers, and consumers in their efforts to improve health and reduce health inequities among Ontario women.
