As part of the Office of Research on Women’s Health’s trans-NIH role to help ensure that research conducted and supported by NIH appropriately addresses issues regarding women’s health, ORWH publishes Women’s Health in Focus at NIH. This quarterly publication highlights recent NIH research involving the health of women as well as research, policy and funding related to the influences of sex and gender on human health and disease.

In addition, the publication covers topics concerning the advancement of women in STEM careers. In Focus also profiles the people and programs that are making a difference in these areas in “spotlight” articles and other features. 

In Focus is celebrating ORWH’s 30th anniversary year with a series of cover stories focusing on the history of the office, ORWH’s careers mission, the NIH sex as a biological variable policy (scheduled for this summer) and the NIH inclusion policies (scheduled for this fall).
