EMPOWER (EMpowering Progress in Obstetric and Women's hEalth Research) was established to create partnerships between mentors and single sites or groups within low- and middle-income countries to improve clinical and health services research into the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
Funding is available up to $60,000 USD for a two-year research project. The immediate objective will be the completion of a project designed by a local investigator and, when appropriate, the dissemination of the results of the study to change practice and improve care.
EMPOWER is a collaboration of the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy, the Preeclampsia Foundation, PRE-EMPT/Global Pregnancy Collaboration, and supporting organization New Zealand Action on Pre-eclampsia.

According to the World Health Organization, preeclampsia is one of the least funded areas of research, especially when considered against Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). The Preeclampsia Foundation’s Vision Grants fund medical research pertaining to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
The Preeclampsia Foundation, through the generous support of our donors, corporate partnerships, and community events such as The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, has supported more than $550,000 in research since its founding in 2000. Successful projects have, in turn, garnered additional research support from major funding organizations, earned scientific merit at important meetings, and inspired young investigators to commit their life’s work to this complex field of study.
