The Women's Sexual Health Foundation (TWSHF) was established in 2003 to make current information on sexual health and sexual medicine easily accessible to the public and to healthcare professionals. Following a careful review of the resources necessary to continue operating, TWSHF board of directors voted to dissolve the non-profit and donate its assets to the National Vulvodynia Association.

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) December 17, 2009 -- The Women's Sexual Health Foundation (TWSHF) was established in 2003 to make current information on sexual health and sexual medicine easily accessible to the public and to healthcare professionals. Following a careful review of the resources necessary to continue operating, TWSHF board of directors voted to dissolve the non-profit and donate its assets to the National Vulvodynia Association, which shares a similar mission to "improve women's health through education, research, support and advocacy." The foundation's website, www.twshf.org, will continue to operate until the transfer is finalized in early 2010.

"Since its inception, The Women's Sexual Health Foundation has been recognized as a credible source of information influencing public knowledge and opinion," says Executive Director Lisa Martinez RN/JD. "I believe the resources and other educational materials available at our website have made a difference by helping women become their own best advocate.

"I am confident that Phyllis Mate, NVA's Executive Director, and her board will be excellent stewards of the educational and research materials developed by TWSHF and will continue to further our shared objectives to improve health for women everywhere," added Martinez.

Martinez also acknowledges the support and guidance of TWSHF advisory board, the many dedicated advocates and volunteers who helped TWSHF throughout the years and the dedicated reporters who have written about women's sexual health in an accurate, balanced and sensitive way.

"We are honored by the confidence Lisa and the Board of TWSHF have shown in the National Vulvodynia Association by deciding to transfer their assets to us," says Phyllis Mate, NVA's executive director. "This generous gift will help the NVA further our mutual goal of educating healthcare professionals and the public on women's sexual health. Lisa has been a leader and an advocate for women in this area, and we are looking forward to continuing her important work."
