Women’s Health Concern (WHC) recognises that patients have diverse gender identities. In our publications, literature, and other printed and digital materials, WHC uses the word “woman” (and the pronouns “she” and “her”) to describe patients or individuals whose sex assigned at birth was female, whether they identify as female, male, or non-binary.
As gender language continues to evolve in the scientific and medical communities, WHC will periodically reassess this usage and will make appropriate adjustments as necessary. When describing or referencing study populations used in research, WHC will use the gender terminology reported by the study investigators.
Women’s Health Concern is greatly indebted to the late Miss Elizabeth Stalley whose bequest made possible the complete re-design and revision of this charity website in December 2007. Since then several benefactors, some preferring to be anonymous, have made donations. These are enabling us to continue to enhance the website and to provide funding towards our key outreach objectives.The trustees of the British Menopause Society and Women’s Health Concern thank you all, especially those who have supported us having suffered loss of close family. In June 2020 we received a bequest in memory of Marie Ayres-Regan. Her husband David recognised that donations to help us through the coronavirus pandemic would be greatly welcomed.
Our charity receives no statutory funding, so we continue to depend on the generosity of all those who value our services.
