The Women's Wellness Center (WWC) model, developed by the American International Health Alliance, represents a new and integrated approach toward healthcare delivery for women from adolescence through menopause. This model offers a comprehensive and client-oriented approach to primary care by offering services that specifically address women's health needs through a combination of health promotion, education, early diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care. Located in more than 30 communities in the countries of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, WWCs have been providing a range of services tailored to specific community needs, such as breast cancer screening and education, family planning, maternal care, fighting domestic violence and substance abuse, and others.

This Toolkit provides a collection of resources and materials related to the different components of the WWC model, including surveys, equipment lists, workplans, WWC brochures, and practical examples of implementation strategies that different WWCs have developed. Furthermore, the toolkit brings together a wide range of reference materials covering the core services provided by WWCs such as reproductive health, family planning, perinatal care, HIV/AIDS, mental health, crisis intervention, health promotion and others. The resources in this toolkit can be utilized to replicate, step by step, the development of a WWC or to enhance the capacity of existing healthcare providers working in women's health.
