J Womens Health Gend Based Med. 1999 May;8(4):441-2. doi: 10.1089/jwh.1.1999.8.441.


The Society for the Advancement of Women's Health Research is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to improving the health of women through research. The Society was founded in 1990 to bring national attention to the problem of the exclusion of women from clinical trials and the need for greater federal funding for diseases and conditions prevalent in and unique to women. Today, the Society works closely with members of the public and private sectors and academic institutions to promote a women's health research agenda. The Society seeks both to shape public policy and improve public and professional education. The Journal of Women's Health is the official publication of the Society. We welcome your views.
