The Commission on Women's Health started as the Governor's Commission on Women's Health. Formed in February 1993, it concluded its work in November 1993. In July 1994, however, the Governor established the Commission on Women's Health as a continuing body as recommended by the former commission (Executive Order 01.01.1994.18).

The Commission seeks to coordinate programs for education, prevention, treatment, and improved access to health care for women. For the preventive health needs of Maryland women, the Commission promotes public/ private partnerships to provide screenings for osteoporosis and high blood pressure. To improve the health of Maryland women, the Commission will sponsor a second major exposition on women's health in March 1997. The Commission also is implementing recommendations of the former Governor's Commission on Women's Health.

Appointed by the Governor, the Commission has from twelve to thirty-three members who serve three-year terms. Five members serve ex officio.
