Women’s Health Conference is organized by ANNISAA Organization of Canada, a women’s empowerment organization promoting the livelihoods of Muslim women through educational enrichment, healthy living, and social development.

The Conference is aiming to address issues regarding the health and well-being of women. Out of everything that makes a woman a woman, the most important is her physiology. Women’s health is very important in all aspects of social, economic, and other aspects of the society because not only because women form more than 50 percent of the population but also for the development of the country. Women’s health is increasingly identified as a global health priority. Women’s health is affected by many factors, such as the economy, environment, society, culture, religion, and biology.

For this reason, ANNISAA Organization of Canada decided to hold an Annual Conference on Women’s Health. The aim of this conference is to provide up-to-date information on different aspects of women’s health, including healthy ageing, non-communicable and communicable diseases, psycho-social aspects, health promotion, reproductive health, and nutrition.

The theme is Health Equity.

What is health equity? Having health equity means that every individual has a fair opportunity to live a long and healthy life. It means that health and health care should not be compromised based on race, ethnicity, gender, income, sexual orientation, or social condition.

To Muslim women, having health equity means having access to fair healthcare without being worried about any discriminatory factors. How can we as Muslim women contribute to promoting health equity within our communities? How does this issue affect us? Is this even an issue that we need to be worried about, does it affect our community at all?

Join us this year to find out what it means for Muslim women to have health equity in Canada and how we can create an environment of trust and reliability within our Canadian society.
