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

It's time we put ourselves first

The two biggest barriers for women not maintaining a healthy lifestyle is ‘lack of time’ and ‘health not being a priority’.

Women’s Health Week is the time to put ourselves first, for just one week, and start making positive changes that can last a lifetime.

The health of the ones we love starts with us

We know women are leading busier lives than ever before and we have a tendency to let ourselves slip low on our priority lists. 

However, the health of those we love starts with us. By investing more time in ourselves, we are better able to look after the ones we love and care about.

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 signed up to take part in a week of online activities, videos, resources and information. Now in its 6th year, Women's Health Week is the time to put yourself first and get talking about women's health.

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.
