We monitor health research and regulatory agencies, practices in health care and health industry trends; we identify and expose abuses; and we catalyze grassroots action for change.
Since You Asked - Weekly Q & A
The NWHN believes that with the right information, all women can make good decisions about their health care. It is our goal to provide women with the tools they need to make these decisions.

Unfortunately, not everyone involved in the business of making the drugs and devices that are marketed toward women takes a feminist approach to their work. That’s why the NWHN’s Challenging Dangerous Drugs and Devices Campaign is so important. It puts women’s health and safety first and demands that both of these are more than just an afterthought in the industry.
