    The National Women's Health Network acts as an independent voice for women's health. The organization researches and analyzes women's health issues from a feminist, critical perspective. Members create and disseminate evidence-based information on women's health issues to consumers, advocates, healthcare professionals, media, and policy-makers. The Network monitors and educates congress and federal agencies to ensure that laws and policies, as well as research and regulatory decision-making, reflect the interests of all women. Also within its scope, the organization monitors information provided by companies that sell or promote pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and dietary supplements. Members link activists and community groups nationwide and address the interconnections among social, racial, economic, and gender equity.
