The PSA supports the development of a Women’s Health Strategy. In order to be effective, such a strategy must centre the social determinants of health, including work and employment. The health and social assistance sector employs more women than any other sector and 87% of health and social assistance workers are women. Therefore, work conditions in the sector have a substantial impact on women’s health, and conditions of work in the health sector are a key social determinant of women’s health. The Women’s Health Strategy must address the impact the health care system has on the health of its workers.
