About Wellbeing of Women
Who We Are:
Wellbeing of Women champions women’s health by investing in pioneering research to find cures and treatments. We are the only charity that funds research across the breadth of reproductive health and childbirth, transforming the lives of women, and their families
What We Do:
Many of the treatments and tests taken for granted today and used in everyday clinical practice throughout the UK and beyond, benefiting millions of women, came about thanks to research Wellbeing of Women has funded over the last 50 years. Folic acid to protect the unborn baby, ultrasound in pregnancy, the link between HPV and cervical cancer leading to the national immunisation programme for teenage girls in the UK and over 130 countries around the world and the use of lasers to treat cervical cancer are just some of the medical breakthroughs that Wellbeing of Women research has led to.
Why We Need You:
The UK’s statistics around reproductive health is shocking. 1 in 2 women will suffer from some kind of reproductive or gynaecological health problem at some point in their lives. 17 babies die each day due to birth complications. 21 women die each day from gynaecological cancer. Given these statistics, astonishingly only 2.48% of all publicly funded medical research in the UK is devoted to reproductive health and childbirth. That’s why our work in this overlooked and underfunded area is vital.
The money you raise through your challenge will allow Wellbeing of Women to fund further pioneering medical research to improve diagnosis, develop better treatments, and find cures for reproductive health issues.
