There is a wonderful new resource available to find information on women's health. Since it is from the New Women's College Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, it has a Canadian focus, but many of the sites are good for anywhere. Its brand new product is a toolkit "to assist the many women who have asked us for help in navigating the often confusing maze of health information on the Web." Titled Women Wading Through the Web, it can be downloaded for free. The Toolkit has chapters on "How to use the Internet to search for health information," "How to judge the quality of a website," "how to interpret medical research," and "how to understand media and web-based health information." There are also many links to recommended resources.

Also on the site are feature articles, quick links, discussion groups, answer center, and more.
