AFMW Projects and Initiatives

The AFMW has embarked on several initiatives and projects over the years. These aim to either shed further light on the issues that we advocate for, or assist medical women both professionally and personally. If you are interested in conducting research or undertaking a project that is in alignment with our mission, we are very willing to assist.
