The work of ACEWH

Between 1996 and 2013, the work of Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (ACEWH) comprised three main areas:

  • Research projects: We collaborated with dozens of researchers, hundreds of community partners, and thousands of individuals to learn more about the health needs and experiences of vulnerable populations of women and girls in Atlantic Canada, as well as in other parts of the country and the world.
