Women’s Health Care Services

Women’s health is an important issue for females everywhere. If you’re a female who wants to maintain glowing health (and happiness) for many years, you should regularly receive regular checkups and screenings. These types of examinations can often detect potential medical concerns that need to be addressed right away. It’s important for women to get wellness exams on a regular basis. It’s also crucial for women to be attentive to any potential signs of anything that may be out of the ordinary.  The American Samoa Department of Health believes women’s health is vital for a healthy society and strives to offer the best care possible.  We encourage women to take charge of their health and utilize the services we offer at our various clinics.
