Jean Hailes for Women's Health launched its annual Women's Health Survey on Tuesday, 10 April. The online survey is one of the country's most revealing insights into the health concerns, fears and needs of women in Australia.
Jean Hailes for Women's Health is a national not-for-profit organisation committed to improving the knowledge of women's health throughout the various stages of their lives, and to providing a trusted world-class health service for women. The Jean Hailes aim is to inspire confidence to create a healthier future for all women. After all, if a woman is well, so too is her family and her community.
"The results of our annual women's health survey are used in so many ways to help women and their health professionals," says Janet Michelmore AO, executive director of Jean Hailes. "One of the biggest benefits is that we use the insights to create free resources on topics such as anxiety, menopause and healthy eating. The results also help people across Australia have a better understanding of what women need in terms of support to lead a healthy and productive life and also inform the content for our annual Women's Health Week campaign in September."
Last year, more than 10,000 women responded to the survey. "We can only achieve these fantastic numbers again this year with your help," says Ms Michelmore.
How can you help? Please forward on the survey link to as many women in your networks as possible. The survey is anonymous and takes less than 10 minutes. That small investment of time contributes greatly to the results, leading to promoting practical, positive change for women in the long term.
The survey closes on Tuesday, 5 June. The details of the survey, including printable flyers, social media artwork and email banners, can be found at jeanhailes.org.au/survey2018
