Issues that constrain women's organizations from developing partnerships that promote women's health through health policy development and implementation are discussed in terms of lessons drawn from 3 studies. Key issues are the values underlying notions of partnership and participation, communication across sectors, different worldviews, and the resource limitations of feminist organizations. By attending to constraints and learning from successes and failures, women's organizations will be able to promote women's health through intersectoral partnering.The health sector and health professionals need to respond to the constraints in order to benefit from the expertise that resides within women's organizations.

Le présent article aborde, à la lumière des leçons tirées dans trois différentes études, les enjeux qui limitent la capacité des organisations féminines à établir des partenariats visant, par l'élaboration et la mise en oeuvre de politiques, à promouvoir la santé des femmes. Les principales questions concernent les valeurs sous-tendant le partenariat et la participation, la communication intersectorielle, les différentes visions du monde et les ressources limitées des organismes féministes. En surmontant ces contraintes et en tirant profit des réussites et des échecs, ces derniers devraient être en mesure de promouvoir la santé des femmes grâce au partenariat intersectoriel. Le secteur de la santé et les professionnels doivent s'ajuster à ces contraintes pour pouvoir bénéficier de l'expertise résidant au sein des organisations féminines.
