  • To collect data from each state in the Region and compile a systematic format
  • To identify key women health status indicators such as the number of domestic violence reports against women; number of women living in poverty; incidence of breast cancer, lung cancer, venereal disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and disparity issues, and to hold focus groups to reach consensus on key indicators
  • To develop strategies to address the identified key issues
  • To create a Women's Leadership Institute for Health Policy in Atlanta to offer a week-long course of study for up to 80 selected health care professionals each year from state and local organizations across the Region.
