The FDA Office of Women’s Health has evolved over the years into a robust scientifically sophisticated resource internal and external to FDA. The Office builds its scientific, educational, and consumer information programs on the foundational principle of Sex as a Biological Variable (SABV) and its contribution to the unique health needs of women.
