NSW NGO Women’s Health Centres Literature Review



Urbis was commissioned by the NSW Ministry of Health (the Ministry) to undertake a mapping study to establish a comprehensive understanding of the services provided by NGO Women’s Health Centres in NSW and their alignment with state and local priorities. This literature review was conducted to inform the research project.

Core topics for this research comprised:

  • women’s experience of health and the gender based vulnerabilities that influence women’s health outcomes
  • the services currently available to women through the 20 Women’s Health Centres in NSW
  • the models of care that are most likely to positively affect women’s health outcomes

Australian Women’s Health Charter

The Australian Women’s Health Charter seeks to influence all political parties in the lead up to the 2016 Federal Election. It calls on them, if elected, to commit to national leadership in taking action to ensure the health and well-being needs of all women in Australia are met. 

We also invite other organisations, businesses, governments and communities to sign on and adopt the Australian Women’s Health Charter as their own.
