Media Release – Launch of Women’s Health Hub

Federal Minister for Health the Hon Sussan Ley MP to launch a new online resource that will assist health planners, policy makers, researchers and service providers improve women’s health and well-being.

For the first time in Australia the Women’s Health Hub: Australian Women’s Health Network Clearinghouse will provide a searchable, single entry point at the national level to access and share information on women’s health, which is free to all.

Recognising the difficulty in finding evidence informed research, policy and practice information that is widely dispersed, the Australian Women’s Health Network (AWHN) established the Women’s Health Hub.

The Hub has been designed as a collaborative tool for health workers to share and access knowledge and resources on women’s health and well-being.

AWHN CEO Kelly Banister said:
“There is so much terrific work that has been done to improve health and well-being outcomes for women around the country but it can be difficult and very time consuming to find.

“The Women’s Health Hub will address this problem by providing an easy and efficient way to access and share credible information on women’s health.

“There has been great support and enthusiasm for the Hub from other health organisations across the spectrum of service delivery, research, advocacy and policy development in its establishment phase and we anticipate this will continue as it is used and expands.”

The Women’s Health Hub will be launched at 9am on Thursday 11th June in Blacket Court, Justice & Police Museum, cnr Phillip and Albert Streets, Sydney.

Resources will also be able to be shared via social media portals using the hashtag #womenshealthhub
