Lone Hummelshoj Lone Hummelshoj

World Endometriosis Research Foundation (UK)

Lone Hummelshoj is well known as an advocate in the field of endometriosis, in particular for her work in getting the disease recognised at policy level. She originally made history in 2002 when she was instrumental in the implementation of the first (and only) national legislation, which provides referral guidelines to centralised specialist centres for the treatment of endometriosis in Denmark recognising the need for highly skilled expertise in the management of the endometriosis. She made history again when, in 2006, endometriosis was added to the working agenda of the European Commission, which consequently funded an endometriosis project through its Public Health Programme in May 2007. Lone addressed 100 female state legislators in Washington DC in 2011, highlighting the personal and societal burden of endometriosis, and is presently a member of the Women’s Health All-Party Parliamentary Working Group in the UK.
