The March 21, 2001, issue of JAMA1 was devoted to women’s health and featured articles on physical activity and coronary heart disease, hormone therapy and cognition, risk of dementia in postmenopausal women, estrogen therapy and ovarian cancer mortality, the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis, depressive symptoms among HIV-seropositive women, enhanced surveillance for pregnancy-associated mortality, and cervical cytologic and histologic interpretations. Since then a number of important studies, including several from the Women’s Health Initiative2,3 and the Heart and Estrogen/progestin Replacement Study,4,5 have been published. Studies already published and many currently under way can provide important information to improve the health of women. To assist and enhance this initiative, the editors of JAMA will devote a theme issue in March 2006 to articles pertaining to women’s health.
