Become a Women's Health Champion

Become a Women's Health Champion

Each year, starting on Mother’s Day, the HHS Office on Women’s Health (OWH) leads National Women’s Health Week (NWHW), emphasizing the importance of women focusing on their whole health, including physical, psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing.

Throughout the week, we promote messages about what women can do to take care of their health across the lifespan 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 key health observances. 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.

As described in OWH’s Federal Register Notice (FRN), organizations interested in becoming a Women's Health Champion must submit a letter of interest to, that:

  • Contains the organization’s name, location, website, and submitter’s contact information
  • Provides a brief description of the organization’s mission and/or values
  • Acknowledges their support of the OWH's overarching goals
  • Identifies their activities that demonstrate commitment to the OWH's goals and objectives, and
  • Indicates how they address or support those goals.

The Office on Women's Health leads a wide range of activities and programs, including several key observances.
