Women in Wisconsin are generally healthy, but there are always opportunities to improve.  Women can take steps to become healthier by being active participants in their own health care.  Avoiding tobacco, increasing physical activity, making informed nutritional choices, and regularly visiting their health care provider, will ensure that Wisconsin women are included in the vision of "healthy people in safe and healthy Wisconsin communities."


The Wisconsin Healthiest Women Initiative was created to promote the health of women, building on previous efforts to improve birth outcomes, and to create this collective Wisconsin's Statewide Framework for Improving Women's Health P-00535 (PDF, 784 KB).
