Indiana State Department of Health

Office of Women's Health Office of Women's Health


Welcome to the Indiana State Department of Health’s Office of Women’s Health webpage. The Office of Women’s Health (OWH) is so pleased that you have chosen to learn about how our state is working to help improve the health of women. We believe that every woman should have access to free, up-to-date and reliable resources to find out information about her health. The Office of Women’s Health wants to ensure that each woman and girl in Indiana is aware of her own health status, risks and goals, and can achieve optimal health through access, education and advocacy. Our website is inclusive of all OWH’s programs, and has a page of resources to help guide you in improving your health. Thank you for visiting our site, and we wish you good health!

Indiana Women's Health Groups and Organizations

The OWH has built an interactive map that provides you with local resources that have female membership or serve women in Hoosier communities. Click on your county to find organizations located near you, as well as groups and organizations that can serve you in your community.

Our map is always growing and is not inclusive of all women-focused services or groups in Indiana. If you or your organization are interested in being added to this map, or you need to update currently listed information on the map, please email the Office of Women's Health at OWH@isdh.in.gov for the informational form.
