Women's health. Powerful stuff.

For many women, a lack of time or competing priorities stand in the way of a healthier lifestyle. Women's Health Week is all about you and putting your health first. It's a week where you'll learn more about your health and how to make positive changes that can last a lifetime.

What's involved?

Women's Health Week is a nation-wide campaign of events and online activities – all centred on improving women's health and helping you to make healthier choices. 

In the lead-up to the week, you'll receive helpful information on how to host your own event and how to join the action. 

Then, on each day of Women's Health Week, we focus on an important women's health topic. You'll receive a daily email with videos, recipes, quizzes, articles and tools to help you unlock your own powers for good health. All the health information we produce is based on research and reviewed by our expert medical team.

Women, communities and workplaces are encouraged to get involved by hosting an event, sharing the health information and encouraging women from all corners of Australia to put good health first.

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 subscribed to take part in a week of events and online activities, learning more their health.

Now in its eighth year, Women's Health Week continues to gain groundswell nationally. In 2019, more than 112,000 women participated in more than 2800 events, and almost 45,000 women subscribed to the online campaign.

We are proud that Women's Health Week attracts the support of organisations, high profile ambassadors, businesses, community, sporting and media groups across the country.

Women's Health Week is now a permanent feature on the Australian calendar taking place in the first week of September.
