What You Can Do
The National Women's Health Network improves 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.
Improving Women's Health Policy
We monitor health research and regulatory agencies, practices in health care and health industry trends; we identify and expose abuses; and we catalyze grassroots action for change.
Women's Health Voice
The NWHN believes that with the right information, all women can make good decisions about their health care. It is our goal to provide women with the tools they need to make these decisions.
The National Women’s Health Network (NWHN) improves women’s health by affecting policy.
We know that good policy can make a difference in women’s lives. It can improve access and make health care services available to women who previously couldn’t afford to see a doctor.
Since its beginning, the NWHN has affected women’s health policy in numerous ways. Our core strategic approach is to analyze important health issues and share our take on those issues in ways that catalyze grassroots action.
The NWHN is not a lobbying group, and we’re not a policy shop. We are feminist health activists who use policy analysis as a tool. We use the avenues of input that are open to us – sometimes on the streets, more often in government offices – to bring the voice of people concerned about women’s health to decision-makers who create and implement health policies. Find out how you can be involved in changing conversations about women’s health by joining the NWHN and following us on social media.
