About

The Jean Hailes Women’s Health Week is a week dedicated to all women across Australia to make good health a priority.

Why Women's Health Week?

In 2013, realising that there was no event dedicated to women’s health in Australia, Jean Hailes for Women's Health ran the very first national Women’s Health Week. Thousands of women across Australia registered to take part in a week of online activities, videos, resources and information.

The event continues to gain groundswell nationally and Jean Hailes provides health information and free resources to support thousands of subscribers and hundreds of local events organised by communities Australia-wide.

No more elephants - let's talk!

In 2015, we launched our new campaign No more elephants! It is time to get rid of the elephant in the room and get talking about women's health. 

Women can be good talkers, but when it comes to health, we often don’t take the time to ask questions, seek out credible information and work on a sound plan of action.

What does the odd saying "There is an elephant in the room" mean?

It means there is a problem or difficult situation that is obvious, but nobody wants to talk about it, or address it.
