Editor's preface
Mot du rédacteur en chef

The diversity of our society presents special challenges for Canadian physicians. In this issue we examine the concept of diversity through the lens of women's health: How do factors such as culture, disability and sexuality affect our delivery of health care to women?

Couverture :
