SWHR Thanks House Appropriators for NIH Support

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) serves as the America’s premier biomedical research agency and many of the health-related advances in recent decades are direct results from bipartisan investments in the agency. The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR®) thanks the House Appropriators for their continued support of the Agency. SWHR believes that Congress has a duty to appropriately fund a federal research agenda that is inclusive of women’s health and sex differences research, which will allow us to achieve the goals outlined in the President’s Precision Medicine Initiative, and ultimately improve the health and well-being of all Americans.

One of the federal government’s primary responsibilities is to protect the public health, and to invest in basic biomedical research that leads the way for the next generation of cures and therapies. For over 25 years, SWHR has been widely considered the thought-leader in promoting research on biological differences in disease and we are dedicated to transforming women’s health through science, advocacy, and education.
