Who we are. What we do. How we #RefocusTheResearch to make a difference.
We stand for women and women’s health. The Alberta Women's Health Foundation is a healthcare initiative of the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation supporting the advancement of care and research in women's health. The initiative exists to fill urgent gaps in women’s health research, an area historically underfunded and sometimes nonexistent. The AWHF is spearheading an awareness and fundraising campaign to #RefocusTheResearch, challenging Albertans to shift their attention, money and energy from women's appearances to women's health. Women make up just over half of our country's population, and gave birth to the entire population; women's health is community health.
