Society for Women's Health Research

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 11, 2013, 8:43 PM


The Society for Women's Health Research (SWHR) is the thought leader in research on biological differences in disease and is dedicated to transforming women's health through science, advocacy, and education.

Founded in 1990 by a group of physicians, medical researchers and health advocates, SWHR aims to bring attention to the myriad of diseases and conditions that affect women uniquely. Due to SWHR's efforts, women are now routinely included in most major medical research studies and scientists are beginning to consider biological sex as a variable in their research.

Today, SWHR advocates for greater public and private funding for women's health research and the study of biological differences that

  • affects the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease;
  • encourages the appropriate inclusion of women and minorities in medical research studies;
  • promotes the analysis of research data for biological and ethnic differences; and
  • informs women, health care providers, and policy makers about contemporary women's health issues through media outreach, congressional briefings, public education campaigns, conferences and special events.
