The Women and Infants Research Foundation

The Women and Infants Research Foundation (WIRF) is an Independent Research Institution and charity, formed in 1976. Our research focuses on the major health issues that affect newborns, reproduction and women's health at all ages.

We are closely affiliated with King Edward Memorial Hospital (the only tertiary level perinatal centre in Western Australia), and the School of Women's and Infants' Health at The University of Western Australia.

WIRF is also the charity of King Edward Memorial Hospital, helping to raise vital funds for equipment, new initiatives and providing support to facilitate essential research studies into women and infant health.
