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 ninth year, Women's Health Week continues to gain groundswell nationally. In 2020 (despite COVID-19), more than 90,000 women participated in more than 1400 events, and over 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.
