President Biden is set to sign an executive order on Monday that will enhance research and development in women’s health. This significant action is scheduled alongside a White House reception in honor of Women’s History Month.

The executive order is a call to action for relevant federal agencies to reinforce research and data collection standards specific to women’s health. This effort seeks to optimize the allocation of federal funds towards this vital area. It will also emphasize the importance of prioritizing women’s health research funding and promoting innovation. Various federal agencies will be directed to concentrate on closing the funding gaps in women’s health research and to propose necessary adjustments to address these disparities.

Central to these initiatives is the introduction of a plan to allocate $200 million in fiscal 2025 towards new research projects in women’s health. This move builds on Biden’s appeal to Congress for the establishment of a Fund for Women’s Health Research at the National Institutes of Health. This announcement is concurrent with a White House Women’s History Month reception hosted by the president and first lady, following Jill Biden’s February announcement of a $100 million federal investment in women’s health research through the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H).

Additionally, President Biden, along with First Lady Jill Biden, will unveil over 20 initiatives and commitments from various federal departments, including the Pentagon, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the National Science Foundation.
