Media Release: A new women’s health hub for Australia

Today a new information hub is being launched for women’s health in Australia. 

Women and gender diverse people experience health, illness and healthcare differently to men. Women are more affected by chronic diseases, and they also disproportionately bear the health impacts of all forms of violence.  

The refreshed Women’s Health Hub aims to change this by providing practical resources and tools to health consumer advocates, clinicians, policy makers and governments.  

Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Hon Ged Kearney MP, launched the Women’s Health Hub as a valuable national repository for women’s health. 

The Australian Women’s Health Alliance, Chair, Bonney Corbin said the new Hub is a historic moment for women’s health in Australia.

“Today we celebrate 40 years of women’s health policy with a refreshed platform for change.”

“We can all challenge medical misogyny, and health discrimination more broadly, with a gender lens on health."

“Information is power. A central bank of women’s health resources will help us to reshape health systems for all.”

“In the wake of Roe V Wade being overturned in the US, Australia is taking a proactive stance by investing in preventive health and rights."

“The knowledge shared on this hub will reflect decades of women’s movements for change."

The launch of the refreshed Hub coincides with the unveiling of a refreshed visual identity and name for the organisation, which has evolved from the Australian Women’s Health Network to the Australian Women’s Health Alliance, to better reflect its strategic goals.   

“Our refreshed brand identity reflects our role as a contemporary organisation that is evidence-based, inclusive and collaborative,” said Ms Corbin.  

The Women’s Health Hub is home to a variety of evidence-based resources, including policy documents, national strategies and briefs, which are all freely available. 

“We welcome collaborators interested in co-locating the resources on the Hub, which will release resources in a series of stages over the coming year,” said Ms Corbin.
