Her Health Matters – local business sales for International Women’s Day

From March 1st – March 8th leading up to International Women’s Day local businesses near you will be taking action to support women’s health because Her Health Matters.


Women are the backbone of our society and their health matters. This International Women’s Day we invite you to reflect on the sharp disadvantages women still face in many facets of life, including health outcomes. 


Not only do women’s health issues affect women’s physical bodies, they have further reaching consequences on their families and communities.  That’s why investing in women’s health is central to supporting the greater health of our communities because Her Health Matters.

Together, with our generous partners, we invite women in BC and all the women they love to address their greater well-being and physical health. That’s why we’re partnering with the following local businesses in a variety of on-site and online activations that give back to BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre Foundation.

Women's Health Facts

  1. Prior to the 1990’s women were not included in most medical research studies.

  2. Each year in Canada heart disease kills more women than men. It is the leading cause of death for women over 55, and second most common cause of death for women under 55.
