The Women’s Health Network (WHN), a program of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, provides screening examinations to income-eligible women for the early detection of breast and cervical cancer and cardiovascular disease risk. The Women’s Health Network breast and cervical cancer program component is funded in part by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and in part by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, through the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP). The Women’s Health Network Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program (HDSPP) is funded by the CDC’s Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation program (WISEWOMAN). The Department of Public Health administers the WHN and contracts with health care organizations to deliver program services in different areas of the state.
