XProject - Roche’s commitment to Women’s Health

In the past, science placed men in the forefront as the “default human”, leaving women overlooked and left behind. As a result, today, women are faced with inequities in treatment, care and access to healthcare. As a collective we have a responsibility to act, and to put the healthcare needs of women firmly in the spotlight.

With XProject Roche has initiated a long-term commitment and an ongoing initiative to drive meaningful change through partnerships, funding and action. The objective is to help close the gaps in women’s health for better health outcomes for everyone. It is time to examine the biological differences between men and women to better understand women's health and to better understand their clinical characteristics and personal needs.

"In ¾ of cases, diseases that affect primarily women are underfunded compared to diseases that affect primarily men."
Mirin AA 2021

X represents the female chromosome that has been overlooked in many areas of healthcare. In the past, differences between women and men may have been seen as a hurdle, but we see an opportunity to be better at what we do. We want to give X our full commitment.
