About Wellbeing of Women

Wellbeing of Women’s vision is a world where women are free from the pain, distress and heartache caused by women’s reproductive health issues.

These issues, such as endometriosis, preterm birth, incontinence and menopause are still, sadly, very much taboo. Although women account for 51% of the population, diagnosis, treatment and support for these issues are not as developed as they should be and knowledge about the conditions is very limited due to the lack of funding for this area of medical research. Despite this, almost all women will, in some way or another, encounter a reproductive or gynaecological health issue during the course of their lifetime.

By investing in medical research, we are working to find the answers to the biggest questions in women’s reproductive health to improve treatment, advance knowledge and better support women – and their families – at each stage of life.
