About Us


The Women and Infants Research Foundation (WIRF) is one of Australia’s leading independent research institution dedicated to improving the health of women, infants, reproductive, and women’s mental health. 

For more than 40 years our research and programs have directly contributed to a number of improved clinical practices and health outcomes.


For over four decades, WIRF has attracted doctors, researchers and other leading health professionals to Western Australia, with our work having a fundamental impact on improving women’s and infants’ health.

WIRF now focusses its research across three principal research areas: the prevention of preterm birth, gynaecological cancers, and women’s mental health.

WIRF continues to translate its research into effective partnerships and programs on a statewide level.
