The U.S. government—through its programs and initiatives—has an important role to play in improving the lives of those living with autoimmune diseases and conditions and in addressing the significant public health concerns that are associated with these conditions. This ranges from conducting public health education and awareness campaigns to funding critical research on autoimmune diseases and conditions.

The Society for Women’s Health Research developed the policy brief, “Federal Agencies’ Work in Autoimmune Diseases and Conditions: How Federal Agencies Support Women Living with Autoimmune Diseases and Conditions,” to demonstrate how federal agencies are contributing to improved health and health care for women across the lifespan and why investments in these programs and initiatives should continue to be prioritized.
