Overview and metadata sections
International Council on Women's Health Issues began in 1983 when a group of women at Dalhousie University School of Nursing began to plan a women's health congress. That first International Congress on Women's Health Issues was held in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1984. University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing dean Afaf Meleis was the 2nd Council General of ICOWHI from 2000-2010. Today ICOWHI remains an international nonprofit association dedicated to the goal of promoting health, health care, and well-being of women throughout the world through participation, empowerment, advocacy, education, and research.
