THE WHAM REPORT: Societal Impact of Research Funding for Women’s Health in Coronary Artery Disease

Without information on the potential return on investment for women’s health research, stakeholders lack a basis for altering research investments to improve knowledge of women’s health. In this report, the authors examine the societal cost impact of increasing research funding in coronary artery disease and find that investing in women’s health research yields benefits beyond investing in general research.
