The Australian Women’s Health Alliance is proud to announce the launch of the Women’s Health Hub, a valuable national resource dedicated to improving health outcomes for all women.
This online library banks together a range of resources and women’s health knowledge and will grow to become a comprehensive repository of evidence-based resources as well as a central focus for information on women’s health.
Australian Women’s Health Alliance Chair, Bonney Corbin, said launching the Hub was an important moment for women’s health in Australia.
Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care, the Hon Gerardine (Ged) Kearney MP, formally launched the Hub acknowledging its usefulness for those working in policy, research and practice as well as the broader health ecosystem.
During the launch participants had an opportunity to experience the Hub first hand via a virtual tour of some of the key areas, including the resource library, which will be expanded and updated over time with new materials and online education and training.
In addition to the tour, Master of Ceremonies, Kate Robinson, an Iranian/Australian artist and family violence lawyer hosted a conversation with guest speakers Sasha Kutabah Sarago, a proud Wadjanbarra Yidinji, Jirrbal and African-American woman, who is a speaker, filmmaker, founder of Ascension magazine and author of the memoir Gigorou along with Sarah Firth, cartoonist, artist and writer, speaker and graphic recorder.
Kate, Sasha and Sarah’s lively discussion canvassed a range of topics including:
- the importance of women’s voices, including First Nations perspectives, as part of the process of banking and sharing knowledge on women’s health
- making knowledge about women’s health more accessible to inform policy and reach communities
- the importance of intersectional gender equity in prevention and health care.
Graphic Recorder, Josephine Ford, created a rich and detailed visual depiction of the launch of the Women’s Health Hub, including many of the topics covered by Kate, Sasha and Sarah in their discussion.
You can view this graphic recording below and it will also be saved as a resource in the Hub, along with a recording of the webinar.
The Women’s Health Hub aims to make it easier for everyone committed to health equity and better health outcomes for women, to access the resources necessary to achieve these goals.
