WA Women's Health and Wellbeing Policy Consultation 2019

Closed 28 Jun 2019

Opened 8 Mar 2019

Overview

On Saturday 9 March 2019, the Minister for Health, the Hon Roger Cook MLA, opened the consultation for the Department of Health's new State Policy on Women's Health and Wellbeing under development by the Health Networks Unit.

Designed to complement the Western Australian Men's Health and Wellbeing Policy, the Western Australian Women's Health and Wellbeing Policy (the Policy) will focus on inequalities in health outcomes between women and men, and in population risk groups of girls and women.

The new Policy will identify action areas for WA that align with the priorities contained in the soon to be released National Women’s Health Strategy 2020 – 2030 and the McGowan Government’s Women’s Plan, currently under development by the Department of Communities.

Health Networks have taken ownership of the development of the Policy. We acknowledge the significant work that has already contributed to the development of this Policy by North Metropolitan Health Service, Women's Health, Mental Health, and Genetic Directorate of the Women and Newborns Service.

This survey builds on previous consultations undertaken by Women's Community Health Network, WA.
