The Women’s Health Policy Report is a must-read resource for anyone interested in the coverage of women's health issues of the day.


What is the Women's Health Policy Report?

The National Partnership's Women's Health Policy Report provides a timely snapshot of the major women’s health stories covered in newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations, online outlets, and journals delivered right to your inbox before noon each weekday.

The National Partnership became the new publisher of this acclaimed resource after the Kaiser Family Foundation ceased to publish the report in 2007 — and we have maintained the publication's high standard of editorial excellence that readers have relied upon since 1989.

Who is the National Partnership

The National Partnership for Women & Families is a national non-profit, non-partisan organization with a three-decade commitment to women’s health and rights. 

The National Partnership believes that actions speak louder than words and promotes public policies and business practices that expand opportunities for women and strengthen our nation’s families.

Since 1971, the National Partnership has played a critical role in enacting landmark policy from prohibiting pregnancy discrimination to giving 60 million Americans family and medical leave.

Today, the National Partnership promotes fairness in the workplace, access to quality and affordable health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family.

The National Partnership is a 501(c)3 organization located in Washington, DC.
