National Women’s Health Week is celebrated each year to remind women to take care of themselves and make their health a priority. Women experience unique health care challenges and are more likely to be diagnosed with certain diseases than men. Women also need health care more and access the health care system more than do men. The aim of National Women’s Health Week is to bring to light the importance of women’s health across the country.
