Many disorders associated with brain aging inexplicably affect women, and there has been a lack
of research to understand why. Taking sex (biological factors) and gender (social influences) into
account is necessary for equality in health and precision medicine.
Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI) is a Canadian and U.S. charitable foundation established in
2012 and is solely dedicated to protecting the brain health of women. WBHI helps protect women’s brain health by focusing its resources on research to combat brain-aging disorders that disproportionately affect women, and by creating compelling preventative health programs, grounded in science, so there is a greater understanding of the best ways to prolong women’s cognitive vitality.
