In recent years the issue of women's health has become an important item on the national health care agenda. The Society for the Advancement of Women's Health Research, founded in 1990 to address gender inequities in medical research and finding, has articulated five goals: identifying research areas that impact on women's health, promoting/encouraging public and private financial support for such research, effecting changes in policy and behavior based on this research, creating environments for change by improving information to policymakers and the public, and advancing women as leaders in health professions with the intent of increasing women's health research.
