Become a Women's Health Champion

Become a Women's Health Champion

Each year, the HHS Office on Women’s Health (OWH) leads National Women’s Health Week (NWHW). NWHW 2023 occurs May 14-20, 2023 and emphasizes the importance of women focusing on their whole health - physical, psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing - with a focus on primary care.

Our 2023 theme, Women’s Health, Whole Health: Prevention, Care and Wellbeing, emphasizes the importance of women making their health a priority. Throughout the week, we will promote messages about what women and girls can do to take care of their health and encourage family, friends, and the greater community to support the women in their lives.

The Office on Women's Health (OWH) invites public and private sector organizations to apply to become a Women's Health Champion during National Women’s Health Week. Women's Health Champions may receive recognition from OWH on,, and/or OWH Social Media platforms. They may also receive information, toolkits and resources for dissemination.
