The International Women in Intensive and Critical Care Network (iWIN) is a hub for worldwide research and innovation. iWIN was founded to address the issues of gender equality, and to connect international groups facing similar challenges. As the first international hub of its kind iWIN interacts with its global membership using group surveys, consensus projects, workshops, video conferencing, webinars and blogs. There is also an annual conference allowing physical high level networking and team building.

iWIN’s aims are centred on IDEAL (core values):

Equality (in career progression, research, grants, awards and conferences)
Advocacy (including in education)
Leadership (helping future generations with mentoring from existing role models)

In a world still ravaged by Covid 19 iWIN has identified three major challenges for 2021: in Education, Research and the Systems supporting critical care. iWIN advocates for all women in medicine to feel welcome, safe, supported and respected in these disciplines, and for girls to realise their aspirations. iWIN creates the path for them to do so.  


A gathering of world experts sharing their knowledge, developing new scientific practise and offering guidance and leadership to a select membership. The meeting offers an exclusive opportunity to interact in small groups with clinicians, scientists and all those involved in the upper echelons of healthcare.

It is also an opportunity for women  - too often denied senior positions in critical care medicine, surgery, anaesthesia, gastroenterology, oncology and cardiology  - a chance to build their own career paths supported and working together with men.

iWIN can help your company highlight its commitment to gender equity and women’s care.  

iWIN has been endorsed by many international societies. We are expecting lots senior male and female physicians from all over the globe to attend.

We want to work with you and can offer partners for your research and interests.
Please contact us in case you like to allocate dedicated space and an opportunity to present your products.
