The Older Women’s Network believes that priority must be given to the maintenance of health and well being.
OWNQ recognises that health is more than the absence of disease. Health also includes a personal sense of well being, socio-economic, emotional, social, cultural and physical factors.
The Older Women’s Network understands that the environment is not just a physical issue. The environment is an all embracing concept that influences, and is influenced by, economic, social, cultural and psychological factors such as housing, transport, health, social justice, education and the mass media.
