About Orange County Women's Health Project
Since 2011, the Orange County Women’s Health Project (OCWHP) has worked tirelessly to address gender parity in healthcare. Without it, women’s health suffers, and so too does our overall community.
Although women and men have different health needs, healthcare policies have historically been made primarily—or only—with men in mind. Healthcare studies have been predominantly conducted on men and about men. As a result, half of the population’s healthcare needs have not been adequately understood or addressed. This has a dramatic impact on the well-being of women, their children, their families, and our overall community. The OCWHP is committed to changing this by ensuring that women have a presence and voice in every important healthcare conversation throughout Orange County.
By making a charitable contribution today, you will support the OCWHP’s data-informed approached to shine a spotlight on women’s health issues as they emerge, bringing attention and resources to bear on critical problems so that long-term, sustainable, cross-sectoral solutions can be reached. Your donation will enable the OCWHP to identify the optimal path to positively impact women’s health beginning with research and data analysis, followed by trend studies, resources and gaps evaluation, and convening regional experts and stakeholders to develop strategies and recommendations. The OCWHP, with your help, will then be able to mobilize its base of over 90 partners to implement solutions through education, collaboration, and advocacy so that all Orange County women can live longer and thrive.
To help us address gender parity in healthcare and improve the health of women as well as our overall community, please consider joining our Peeps by making a charitable contribution today. As a Peep, you will enjoy donor benefits and privileges based on your level of giving.
