Welcome

Women’s Health NSW acknowledges the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work today. We pay respect to their elders both past and present; as well as all other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Women’s Health NSW endorses the ‘Uluru Statement From the Heart‘ to call for the establishment of a ‘First Nations Voice’ in the Australian Constitution and a ‘Makarrata Commission’ to supervise a process of ‘agreement-making’ and ‘truth telling’ between governments and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NSW NGO Women’s Health Centres Literature Review

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

BACKGROUND

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.
