We improve the health of all women by developing and promoting a critical analysis of health issues in order to affect policy and support consumer decision-making.
The National Women's Health Network was founded in 1975 to give women a greater voice within the healthcare system. NWHN is a membership-based organization supported by thousands of individuals and organizations nationwide. We do not accept financial support from pharmaceutical companies, tobacco companies or medical device manufacturers. NWHN is committed to advancing women's health by:
- raising women's voices for the health care we need
- challenging dangerous drugs and devices
- securing sexual and reproductive health and autonomy
- building a higher-quality, more equitable health care system
To accomplish these goals we shape policy and support consumer decision-making by developing and promoting a critical analysis of health issues. The NWHN monitors the actions of federal regulatory and funding agencies, industry and the health professions, identifies abuses and makes change by exposing the abuse and catalyzing grassroots action.
