Capitol Hill Briefing Series on Women’s Health Policy

Kaiser Family Foundation Capitol Hill Briefing Series on Women’s Health Policy

Women’s health needs and economic circumstances make health coverage and access to care important throughout their lives. They are disproportionately affected by changes in policies that impact both the private and public sectors. To provide policymakers with up-to-date information and allow for an interchange of ideas with experts in the field, the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, in partnership with Women’s Policy, Inc., sponsors this Capitol Hill briefing series on women’s health policy.

Each briefing in the series focuses on different aspects of Women’s Health Policy. Topics include:


Women, Work, and Family Health: A Balancing Act This briefing addresses the multiple roles that women play to meet their family’s health care needs and the challenges that women face in balancing family health and workplace responsibilities. Topics covered include special challenges for low-income women as well as public and private sector work/family policies. (Wednesday, October 8, 2003)
