Improving Access to Sexual and Reproductive Services for People Living with Endometriosis


September 26, 2023

The Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) Fund was established to support a wide range of evidence-informed and innovative projects that address the pressing needs of people in Canada who are at increased risk for poorer SRH outcomes, such as members of 2SLGBTQI+ communities, Indigenous and racialized people, newcomers to Canada, women, and youth.

Budget 2021 committed $45 million over three years to improve access to a full range of SRH care support, information, and services, with an additional $36 million in Budget 2023, starting in 2024-25.

Today, the Government of Canada is providing more than $1.6 million in new funding to The Endometriosis Network Canada and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada for their projects.
