ASPET Joins WHAM-backed Resolution Calling for Expanding Women’s Health Research

May 18, 2022

Along with more than 25 other leading health organizations, ASPET joins Women’s Health Access Matters (WHAM) in calling for Congress to accelerate women’s health research, especially for diseases that disproportionately affect women. The medical research gender gap is not only a detriment to women’s health, but it is also holding back the American economy. Senator Tammy Duckworth and Representative Jan Schakowsky recently introduced a resolution highlighting new data from The WHAM Report that shows clear disparities in funding and builds the economic case for change, showing that small investments have outsized economic returns. Adding $300 million for research focused on women across just three disease areas will bring back $13 billion to our economy. We are proud to support this effort to drive change.
