We are Canada’s leading national foundation for women’s sexual and reproductive health. With the support of individuals, medical organizations and companies, we fund research and initiatives to improve the health of Canadian women at every stage of their lives. We champion funding for women’s health research nationally and foster support for international women’s health programs.

Research and activities supported by the Canadian Foundation for Women’s Health aim to enhance and advance sexual and reproductive health for Canadian women.
