Prevention and women’s health

We work to articulate the policies and actions necessary to improve health outcomes for women. There is currently poor understanding and a lack of accessible evidence across health and related sectors about healthcare and prevention with a gender and health equity lens.  

How can preventive health action be more effectively integrated with health and social care for women?

This is an important challenge for the National Preventive Health Strategy 2021-2030 and the National Women’s Health Strategy 2020-2030. 

The Women’s Health Hub is a key resource to identify and share effective prevention strategies to achieve health equity for women. 

The Gendered Framework for Action on Prevention and Healthcare is built on 7 structural factors that contribute to gender inequity and it provides a focus for the issues we are trying to address. Considering these factors is the basis for the development of gender equitable policies, strategies and action plans:

1.       Strengthening research, evidence and information

2.       Addressing structural and intersecting barriers to universal access

3.       Eliminating gendered discrimination in health care

4.       Rebalancing care, work and health

5.       Evolving models of gender-responsive prevention and health care

6.       Addressing the gendered nature of violence and its health impacts

7.       Enabling agency
