Women sharing health issues and advice


The China-US Women's Foundation believes that we can achieve a healthier society by understanding how social and economic conditions impact health and medical treatment, and working to improve those conditions. 

According to the OHCHR at the United Nations, the right to maximum health extends not only to appropriate health care but also to the 'underlying determinants of health, such as access to safe and potable water and adequate sanitation, healthy occupational and environmental conditions, and access to health-related education and information, including on sexual and reproductive health.' 


CUSWF brings together Western medical know-how and traditional Chinese preventive care to help solve these issues. Through educational webcasts, events and collaboration, we work to educate on key health issues that especially affect women, and explore how a fusion of East and West medical knowledge and health practices can help achieve the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health for everyone.
