Wellbeing of Women logo

Wellbeing of Women is the only charity in the UK funding peer-reviewed pioneering medical research across the whole spectrum of women’s reproductive and gynaecological health. Our mission is to improve diagnoses and treatments and find cures and preventions to transform the lives of women and their babies everywhere. Since the charity was established in 1964, we have invested around £54 million in the vital early science which lays the foundations of the major medical breakthroughs. Much of the research we have funded has led to the care and cures which are now part of everyday clinical practice.
