About Us

We’re Canada’s national not-for-profit fundraising foundation for women’s sexual and reproductive health. With the support of individuals, medical organizations and companies, we fund research that is improving “health between the hips” for Canadian women at every stage of their lives. We are champions of increased funding for research on women’s health and we also foster support for international women’s health programs.
