In November 1998, OWH launched a broad-based web site for womens health information -- the National Womens Health Information Center (NWHIC), todays "womens health central" for Federal and private sector information about womens health for the public, health care professionals, medical researchers, educators and the media.
Remember, the material contained on NWHIC is intended to help educate and inform you about womens health issues. It isnt a substitute for medical advice from a health care professional. Our goal is to simplify access to the wealth of womens health information available in print and on-line from the Federal government and the public sector and to let you know how we are working in the Department of Health and Human Services to improve womens health.
