Wellbeing of Women has been funding medical research for more than 50 years. We have invested in vital projects to enable research developments in our three main areas of work: pregnancy and birth, gynaecological cancers, and general wellbeing.
General wellbeing covers a broad spectrum of women’s health that is often poorly understood or discussed. We are one of the few charities championing these issues, and we have funded work on understanding hot flushes, the use of botox to treat incontinence, and better treatments for endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.
