In preparation for the congressionally requested Advancing NIH Research on the Health of Women: A 2021 Conference, NIH is inviting comments from the extramural scientific community, professional societies, and the general public to assist in identifying women’s health research gaps and pitfalls in clinical practices. More specifically, the comments should focus on research gaps and clinical practices related to rising maternal morbidity and mortality rates, increasing rates of chronic debilitating conditions in women, and stagnant cervical cancer survival rates.
Comments received will be used to inform discussion and help shape the direction and scope of the conference. To ensure consideration, responses to the request for information must be submitted by September 15, 2021. Submit comments to: WHCC@od.nih.gov
