Women's health launches website

Tuesday, 8 March 2022

International Women’s Day 2022 marks the day that the special research programme called Women’s Health (WH) launched its website. The multidisciplinary group of researchers work together on solving health and wellbeing-related problems in various life phases of women. On the website, WH gives an overview of all the research at the University of Twente related to the health and wellbeing of women.

The new collaboration wants to bring new technologies specific to women’s health. "Current healthcare research traditionally has a male first approach, which not always gives the most optimal solution fit for female patients. Differences between men and women occur in health and disease manifestation, and also in response to treatment. We work to improve women’s health and wellbeing throughout their lifespan thereby benefiting both women, their children and loved ones, and thus impact society as a whole“, says Prof. Dr. Sabine Siesling, chair of Women’s Health.
