The objectives of the roundtable are to:
- Review the state of science and develop strategies to address knowledge gaps and unmet needs related to lupus research, health care, and comorbid conditions in women;
- Promote science-based health care policies that advocate for comprehensive access and coverage to diagnostics, health care, and clinical trials for women living with lupus;
- Identify opportunities to reduce disparities and improve access to care and patient outcomes, particularly for high-risk and vulnerable subpopulations of women; and
- Develop materials to expand education and raise awareness about lupus for women, health care providers, and policy stakeholders.
