Women's Health Programs
Good healthcare is built upon many partnerships. These SOGC projects, developed through close collaboration with national and international partners, reflect the mutual understanding that improving healthcare requires a collaborative, holistic approach.
Whether it is through building capacity for healthcare internationally, exploring new and efficient models of healthcare delivery, or by providing the public with the information needed to make informed health decisions, all SOGC projects share the single common goal of removing the barriers to improved health.
Canadian Foundation for Women’s Health (CFWH)
With the generous support of individual donors and our corporate partners, the Canadian Foundation for Women’s Health helps makes possible major initiatives in women’s health research and education. In addition, this support helps fund programs to train healthcare professionals in low-resource countries, ensuring local women have access to a safe and healthy pregnancy.

Compassionate Contraceptive Assistance Program
The Compassionate Contraceptive Assistance Program (CCAP) is a program administered by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC). The program provides contraception to women who could not otherwise afford it. This program could not be made possible without the generous donations of partners.
Licensed Canadian physicians can create an account with CCAP to order from a list of available contraceptives on behalf of their patients.
