Mother and babyIt is no longer in question that women have unique health needs, concerns and challenges. Among them are reproductive health, pregnancy and childbirth, sexual and intimate partner violence, and cancers that disproportionately affect women, including cervical and breast cancer. Women often face environmental and occupational health exposures both in the home and in the workplace that heighten health risks.

Migrant women face significant disparities with an additional layer of complexity and require different intervention strategies.

MCN has compiled resources that address these challenges and barriers to care with tools, education and programming for clinicians and migrant women. Please explore the following topics:
