Presented annually each September by Jean Hailes, Women’s Health Week is the biggest week in Australia focusing on good health and wellbeing. It is a timely reminder for women and girls to make their health a priority and to take care of themselves, at every age and life stage.
During the week individuals, communities and workplaces are encouraged to hold events with a focus around women’s health and wellbeing. Public events are listed on the Women’s Health Week website and event hosts receive early access to the daily health content and resources to help with event planning.
Campaign special-edition gift bags are also available for exclusive order by event hosts, while stocks last.
Event registration is online and easy. Just visit our Host an event page to learn more.
“Events come in all shapes and sizes and are a great way to promote local health and community services, educate women on their health, or provide a safe and inviting setting for women to connect and talk,” says Brenda Jones, Women’s Health Week campaign manager at Jean Hailes.
“Our gift bags also provide a great incentive and are ideal to fill with information and resources to share good health with your guests.”
This year’s striking bag design is by Aboriginal visual artist Elizabeth Close. The artwork is titled Red Country and represents connection to community, country and culture.
“It’s so beautiful, you might even like to sell them at your event and raise funds to support the work of Jean Hailes for Women’s Health,” says Ms Jones.
