On the occasion of the international day of action for women’s health this Tuesday, May 28, Franck Leroy, President of the Grand Est Region, went to the Nord Ardennes Hospital Center in Charleville-Mézières to inaugurate two MRIs recently installed in the radiology department. He announced the launch of a Call for Expressions of Interest (AMI) intended to improve the health and well-being of women, representing a commitment of 500,000 euros over the period 2025-2027.

A meaningful commitment to women’s health and well-being

In Grand Est as elsewhere, women are faced with specific health problems (endometriosis, cancers, menopause, postpartum depression, etc.). This is why Franck Leroy, President of the Grand Est Region, with Nadège Hornbeck, Vice-President in charge of health, prevention and disability, and Véronique Guillotin, President of the Health, Solidarity and Citizenship Commission, have decided to devote an envelope of 500,000 euros to finance projects aimed at:

  • Improve the identification and diagnosis of these pathologies
  • Facilitate access to care and health services
  • Strengthen prevention and health promotion initiatives
  • Improve the quality of life of the women concerned.

The conditions of attribution

Projects eligible for this AMI can come from various structures (public, private, associative) located in the Grand Est. The financing will notably cover investment expenses, including the creation, renovation or development of premises, the purchase of necessary medical equipment and materials, as well as the development of digital and communication tools. Each project will be able to benefit from aid of up to 150,000 euros, with a maximum intervention rate of 50% of eligible expenses.

This AMI focuses on 6 major health priorities:

  • Cardiovascular diseases: improving diagnosis and treatment of women at risk.
  • Endometriosis: improve care and awareness of this pathology.
  • Cancer screening: increase screening rates for breast, ovarian and cervical cancers, as well as other cancers that are increasing among women.
  • Mental health disorders: support and care for women suffering from depression, anxiety and other mental disorders.
  • Mental health of young mothers: screening and management of postpartum depression.
  • Menopause: improving information and prevention of pathologies linked to menopause.

Through this call for expressions of interest which is part of the regional roadmap on Health 2021-2027, the Region contributes to reducing inequalities in access to care and promotes the well-being of all women, wherever they live in the territory.

Interested project leaders are invited to request a pre-application form from
