hold hands with heart shape

Only eight per cent

of all Canadian health research funding is done specifically on women’s health

300. That’s the average number of Alberta women who are sent home from the emergency department each year only to be later readmitted with a heart attack. Heart attacks now kill more women than men in Canada.

Closing gaps in women's health begins with a commitment to research. That’s why, on International Women’s Day 2021, we announced our support for the launch of the new Alberta Women’s Health Foundation.

The Alberta Women's Health Foundation will support more than 140 researchers at the Women and Children's Health Research Institute. Through its launch campaign, which we’re proud to sponsor, the foundation will raise awareness of its ongoing work to bring research from the lab to health care settings across the province. The campaign challenges Albertans to #RefocusTheResearch to improve health outcomes for women and girls while challenging Albertans to shift their attention, money and energy from women’s appearances to women’s health.
