OUR POLICY AND ADVOCACY EFFORTS
PCOS Challenge is the leading organization advocating for and shaping public policy with regard to women and girls impacted by polycystic ovary syndrome. PCOS Challenge works with the U.S. Congress, federal and local government agencies to shape public policy and legislation affecting people with polycystic ovary syndrome. Our efforts help improve and expand access to care and increase funding for PCOS research. Through our policy efforts, national advocacy and state initiatives, PCOS Challenge addresses areas where specific and urgent needs exist.
In 2017, PCOS Challenge built a coalition of over 70 major national and international health organizations and led the first ever successful legislative advocacy effort in the U.S. Congress to recognize the seriousness of PCOS, the need for further research, improved treatment and care options, and for a cure for PCOS and to designate September as PCOS Awareness Month.
