About Us

A few words about the
Australian Women’s Health Network

When all women are healthier then all Australians will benefit.

We ensure the voices of women are heard in debates about design and implementation
of policies that impact upon women’s health.

We make visible the issues, often far reaching, that impact upon women’s health.

We are a national body that works closely with our members, partners and government to deliver change.

Our Vision

A healthy society

OUR ROLE
