As a rural, geographically isolated, and highly diverse community, Powell River has an ongoing shortage of family physicians and access to other health care services and facilities. The goals of our action are as follows:
1. Give all Powell River women, including marginalized women (First Nations, elderly, youth, LBT women, women with mental illnesses, women with disabilities) an opportunity to express what they need to gain and sustain good health for themselves.
2. Strengthen all Powell River women's ability to express their needs, advocate for themselves and build support with other women.
3. Raise awareness in the community about the gaps in health care services.
4. Start a dialogue with care providers to enlist their help in addressing health care needs for women in Powell River.
