World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF)

About Us

The World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF) was created in 2006 as the first global charity to foster research in endometriosis to improve knowledge and treatments.

Endometriosis affects more than 100 million women in the world, and there is no cure. WERF has a vision of a day when no woman is crippled by endometriosis nor prevented by the disease from having children.

To achieve this WERF carries out well powered, international multi-centre trials, and support specific research projects investigating disease mechanisms. WERF is now working with 32 centres in 21 countries.
