Who We Are
The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR®) is a nonprofit thought leader dedicated to promoting research on biological differences in disease and improving women’s health through science, policy, and education.
Founded in 1990 by a group of physicians, medical researchers and health advocates, SWHR aims to bring attention to the variety of diseases and conditions that disproportionately, differently or exclusively affect women. Thanks to SWHR’s efforts, women are now routinely included in most major medical research studies and scientists are considering sex as a variable in their research. Read the full history.
