HHS Coordinating Committee on Women's Health

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Coordinating Committee on Women’s Health (CCWH) was established in 1984 to advise the Assistant Secretary for Health (and, in 1993, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health — Women's Health) on activities across HHS that would safeguard and improve the physical and mental health of all women in the United States. The coordinating committee is chaired by Nancy C. Lee, M.D., and members include senior-level representatives from each of the federal agencies and offices within HHS.

In acknowledgment of its 30th anniversary in 2014, the CCWH created a PDF - Requires Adobe Acrobat Reader timeline (PDF, 338 MB) of milestones in women's health reached by CCWH member agencies and offices. See our interactive 30 Achievements in Women's Health in 30 Years (1984 – 2014) webpage for more milestones in women's health.
