Women’s Health Week

What is Women’s Health Week?

Women’s Health Week is an Australia-wide awareness campaign, run annually in September. It was founded in 2013 by Jean Hailes for Women’s Health Australia—an established non-profit dedicated to improving women’s health.

Let’s talk women’s health!

During Women’s Health Week each year, thousands of women register online and attend community events, celebrating and talking about women’s health issues.
