We believe you.
Herstasis® Health Foundation is a Canada-based non-profit enabling a step-change in the Standard of Care and Quality of Life for women experiencing debilitating and distressing symptoms of the menopausal transition.
Things will get better.
Our free, science-based educational tools give diverse women the means to learn, communicate and take action on menopausal symptoms that are impacting their life, and those around them.
There is something you can do about it.
Our team is comprised of scientists, engineers, business professionals and clinical researchers working together to create a platform for women to manage their often devastating menopause symptoms and feel more in control of their life.
Herstasis® Health Foundation is building a bridge between perimenopausal women, health care providers and researchers through scientific knowledge translation, an integrated women’s health platform and collaborative projects across digital health, education and entertainment spaces.
Our goal is to reach millions of women to help them understand what is happening with their body and their mind, and to ultimately help them have a healthier, more peaceful menopause transition.

We believe that women deserve to be included in clinical trials, with fewer exclusions, to deliver better diagnostics and evidence-based symptom management therapeutics.
