The Endometriosis Ambassador Program

Seventeen activists with endometriosis were trained to become experts on their condition by delving into the medical, social, personal, and gender aspects of endometriosis. They have also been provided with tools for public engagement and presentations, so that upon completion of the training they were able to create their own initiatives in order to raise awareness of this debilitating disease that affects one in ten women but is diagnosed with an 11 (!) year delay in Israel.

The Endometriosis Ambassadors went on to found their own NGO: Endo Israel - now a thriving organization and community that changed the landscape for endometriosis patients and their families in Israel.

A study on birth experiences of women in Israel

This research project in two hospitals - Carmel and Bnei Zion - is the first of its kind to provide quantitative data, along with a theoretical gender analysis, of obstetric violence in Israel. These data can be used to optimize and improve the treatment of women in childbirth and encourage policy changes in the field.
