Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI)

Our Foundation ensures women and their health needs are validated through solutions-focused research and innovation at the Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI).

There is still so much we don’t know about women’s health. Many clinical trials before the 1990s did not include women, and women still aren’t equitably included. This inequity shows up in the care women receive, every day.

The WHRI is found right here at BC Women’s, but it’s so much more than a research institute embedded in a hospital. It has over 250 members from across BC who are dedicated to creating new knowledge and evidence for women, girls, and newborns.
