      Women’s health research and efforts to advance the careers of women in biomedicine are being performed across the NIH Institutes, Centers, and Offices, as well as in other agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the private sector. There is a global trend for reducing adolescent pregnancy, most notably in middle-income countries. The W.H.O. report on women's health in reveals the leading cause of death for women in reproductive years globally is HIV.

Gender equality in health means that women and men have equal conditions for realizing their full rights and potential to be healthy, contribute to better health systems in their countries, and benefit from the result. USAID's decades of experience have shown that health programs addressing gender barriers improve development outcomes overall.

In response to the National Academy of Sciences Report “Beyond Bias and Barriers,” NIH established a Women in Biomedical Careers Working Group that issued a request for applications to foster research on the causal factors and interventions that promote and support the careers of women in biomedical and behavioral science and engineering.
