Jean Hailes partners with Optus to bring women’s health up to speed

Jean Hailes for Women’s Health is excited to announce Optus as the 2018 National Women’s Health Survey Partner. This is the second year Optus has been involved with Women’s Health Week.

To be launched in April, the fourth annual national survey is the largest study of kits kind focusing specifically on women’s health, their concerns and needs. 

Developed and designed by Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, the online survey attracted more than 10,000 respondents in 2017 with results used to help identify gaps in health information and the future health needs of women living in Australia.

Janet Michelmore AO, Executive Director of Jean Hailes says the results create a true snapshot of the state of women’s health today.

“Results help us better understand women’s health knowledge and form the basis of the Women’s Health Week campaign, encouraging women to make practical, positive changes to their lives.”

Optus Vice President of Human Resources, Vaughan Paul said, “Optus is proud to be involved with this important survey and Women’s Health Week which keeps women up to speed on the latest research as well as the importance of women’s health and wellbeing.”
