The Global AWARE Group Educational Materials

The global AWARE (Appropriate care for Women with AndRogen Excess) group is a panel of independent physicians with an expert interest in androgen excess. Their mission is to address the unmet need in androgen excess to ensure that women receive appropriate care. Since its formation in 2015, the AWARE group and its ongoing work is supported by Bayer. The group have created a number of useful resources that are available to download below. These resources aim to support healthcare professionals in the recognition, diagnosis and appropriate treatment of androgen excess. You may want to use these materials to support discussions with colleagues, for example, in a workshop setting.
