Women in Clinical Trials Campaign (DWCT)

The FDA Office of Women’s Health (OWH) is partnering with the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health to initiate a Diverse Women in Clinical Trials Campaign (DWCT). The campaign’s goal is to raise the awareness of the importance for women of different ages, races, ethnic backgrounds, and health conditions to participate in clinical trials. Medical products may not affect men and women in the same way; women may have different side effects. It is critical that diverse women participate in clinical trials to show if products are safe and effective for women. The Diverse Women in Clinical Trials Initiative includes a consumer awareness campaign, as well as, resources and workshops for health professionals and researchers.
