The World Endometriosis Research Foundation (WERF) is the global charity which fosters research into endometriosis to improve knowledge and treatment(s).

WERF achieves this by providing a platform that:

  1. facilitates and carries out well-powered international multi-centre studies involving sufficient patient numbers to provide results of statistical significance, and
  2. supports specific research projects investigating disease mechanisms.

This enables global collaboration amongst researchers to ensure that:

  • collaborative research is carried out between international centres;
  • strict protocols are enforced to ensure research is high quality;
  • datasets are shared;
  • encouraging results lead to further research;

and enabling results being translated into viable treatments to provide a solution for those affected by endometriosis.

WERF’s goals

  • A day where no woman is crippled by endometriosis or unable to have children due to the disease.
  • A day where endometriosis can be prevented.

This is what the World Endometriosis Research Foundation is about.

WERF is working towards a future where millions of women are not going to have their lives compromised by endometriosis.
