Women's Health Issues

Women's Health Issues (WHI) is a peer-reviewed, bimonthly, multidisciplinary journal that publishes research and review manuscripts related to women's health care and policy. As the official journal of the Jacobs Institute of Women's Health, it is dedicated to improving the health and health care of all women throughout the lifespan and in diverse communities. The journal seeks to inform health services researchers, health care and public health professionals, social scientists, policymakers, and others concerned with women's health

WHI invites manuscripts reporting the results of original research on topics in women's health care and policy related to diverse health conditions and issues. The Journal is particularly interested in receiving original manuscripts that contribute to our understanding of:

  • Racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in women's access to services and use of health services
  • Rural women's health and health care patterns
  • Patient and provider factors affecting women's screening and preventive services
  • Women's access to, and use of, health information sources
  • Providers' awareness of gender-based evidence for preventive and treatment practices
  • Organizational, provider, and patient determinants of quality of care for women
  • Agenda-setting and implementation of policies related to women's health and health care
  • Evaluation of integrated health care programs for women
