Excerpt
1.1 Background and purpose 'Ihe World Health Organization and other international and national organizations and government bodie~ are increasingly responsive ro the particular health needa of women. This paper reflects issuea and ideas about women'a health which appeared as dominant themes at the WHO Conference on Women and Kealth held in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, in May 1983. The themes themselves have appeared in virtually every conference on women and health held in Europe and North America over the past decade (see Annex 1 for a list of officially sponsored national and international meetings which reflect these concerns). These themes represent a vision of women'a health which has emerged from the women's health movement throughout Europe and North America over the past 15 years. This movement consists of women who participate in hundreds of women's self-help health groups, health clinics, health rights organizations and groups which write and publish timely health information for women (ISIS, 1980; Boston Women's Health Book Collective, 1976; Doyal, 1983; Freeman, 1982; Kickbusch, 1978; Ruzek, 1978; Kleiber and Light, 1978; Rodenatein, 1980; Women's Health Information Centre, 1983). For example, one of the best known groups, the Boston Women'e Health Book Collective, in the United States, has sold over two million copies of the US edition of their enomoualy popular health manual, Our bodies, ourselves.
