Our Local Partners in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health (WAWH) is advancing legislation in support of a patient’s right to receive medically accurate care, a health care professional’s right to provide medically accurate care, and clinic safety. WAWH will raise and strengthen public awareness and support of this work by incorporating NIRH’s latest public opinion and messaging research into a new proactive policy campaign, and build their coalition by engaging new organizations and individuals willing to endorse proactive reproductive health care initiatives.
The National Institute supported the Wisconsin Alliance for Women's Health in its efforts from 2012 to 2014 to strengthen collaborations, improve voter education, and counter restrictions on access to reproductive health care.
In 2010, with support from the National Institute, the Milwaukee Public Schools Foundation developed an evaluation tool for their Human Growth and Development curriculum and expanded the number of schools and classrooms receiving the curriculum across Milwaukee.
In 2011, the National Institute supported NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin's investigation into the activities of crisis pregnancy centers in Madison.
