In 2011, the Orange County Women's Health Project (OCWHP) convened a coalition of over 60 local women's health stakeholders to begin addressing gaps in women's health needs in Orange County. The group reviewed approximately 200 data sets from national, state, and local sources and assembled a set of 40 Women's Health Indicators for Orange County women.  While analyzing the data, the OCWHP and its coalition partners identified four priority health issues affecting women across the county - issues that were affecting a great number of women in Orange County; issues for which local women were not doing as well as their peers or against established benchmarks; and issues which were not otherwise being addressed collaboratively in the county which had policy potential.  These four priority health issues for Orange County women are: 

Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Health & Domestic Violence, and Teen Reproductive Health
