The Women and Infants Research Foundation (WIRF) is Western Australia's leading community-based research organisation dedicated to the fields of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Newborn Medicine. WIRF has a close working relationship with King Edward Memorial Hospital which is the sole tertiary level perinatal centre for Western Australia and the School of Women’s and Infants’ Health of The University of Western Australia.
WIRF conducts research independently as well as in partnership with other organisations to fund, support and advocate for high quality scientific studies. Many fields are under investigation including the prevention of preterm birth, care of sick newborns, the establishment of a human milk bank and the management of menopause.
The Women and Infants Research Foundation is the only organization in Western Australia that is solely dedicated to the health of women and infants. The Foundation carries out high quality research into reproductive health of women at all ages and is a leader in research for the prevention of preterm birth and still birth.
With your help we can continue to solve the problems associated with preterm birth, menopause, labour management and providing human milk.
