The Global Alliance for Women's Health (GAWH) "is committed to advancing women's health in all stages of life and at all policy levels through health promotion, education, advocacy, and program implementation." [1]

"The Global Alliance for Women’s Health (GAWH) was founded in 1994 by Dr. Elaine Wolfson. Dr. Wolfson’s experience as an NGO representative at the United Nations in the early 1990s, along with more than two decades of work on women’s health policy, made her highly aware of both the consistent under-attention given to women’s health and the inadequate information available on women’s health worldwide."
