RED BANK, N.J., Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- HealthyWomen, the nation's leading health information resource for women, and Women's Health Foundation, the nation's leading nonprofit committed to improving women's pelvic health and wellness, announced today a strategic partnership to form the nation's premiere sexual and pelvic health resource. Under this new partnership, both organizations will collaborate to expand their expertise and content reach in all areas of pelvic health for women across all life ages and stages.
"In today's 24/7 world, knowing how to reach, educate and inspire women to live their healthiest lives is deeply entrenched in both organizations' missions," said Beth Battaglino, RN, president and CEO of HealthyWomen. "Pelvic and sexual health education is no exception. Our collective goal is to expand our abilities to provide unparalleled, evidence-based information on pelvic health topics—and to develop programs that incite action and help women live fuller, more active lives."
Under the terms of the agreement, both organizations will expand their sex and pelvic health education with a focus on prevention and awareness to demystify "below the belt" issues, as well as articulate treatment strategies and help women understand how to access care and advocate for their own pelvic health. The result for existing and new campaign funders is an increased connection to a highly engaged audience of women, world class education and market research, policy and grassroots education programs designed to empower consumers to take a proactive role in their pelvic health.
"We are thrilled to partner with HealthyWomen; it's a collaboration that will ensure a deep body of unparalleled pelvic health information with a built-in megaphone for our messages, thereby enabling us to reach so many more information-seeking women." said Missy Lavender, Founder and Executive Director of the Women's Health Foundation. "Both organizations are committed to ending what is often a sisterhood of silence by empowering women to join a sisterhood of strength and this partnership is symbolic of that."
