Closing gaps in women’s health begins with a commitment to research.

Alberta Women's Health Foundation (AWHF) supports the advancement of care and research in women's health. The AWHF was launched by the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation as an extension of its mission in women’s health in 2020. 

This charitable health brand seeks to meet the increasing need for funding related to women’s health initiatives and seeks to close gaps that exist in women’s health knowledge, research, and care through the development of meaningful partnerships across public, private, and philanthropic sectors.


Research is the track that the engine of clinical care follows. ~ Dr. Sandra Davidge, Executive Director, Women and Children's Health Research Institute

The Alberta Women's Health Foundation respectfully acknowledges that we are on the traditional lands referred to as Treaty 6 Territory, and that the City of Edmonton and all the people here are beneficiaries of this peace and friendship treaty. Treaty 6 encompasses the traditional territories of numerous western Canada First Nations such as the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Metis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people who have called this area home since time immemorial.
