The National Women’s Health Strategy aims to improve the health and wellbeing of all women and girls in Australia.

Page last updated: 09 April 2019

The National Women’s Health Strategy for 2020 to 2030 (the Strategy) builds on the National Women’s Health Policy 2010, and outlines Australia’s national approach to improving health outcomes for all women and girls, particularly those at greatest risk of poor health.

The Strategy aims to drive continuing improvement in the health and wellbeing of all women in Australia. It identifies specific actions to address the health issues that affect women and girls throughout their lives and aims to reduce inequities in health outcomes between men and women, and between sub-population groups of women and girls.

Consultation for the development of the Strategy included:

  • a National Women’s Health Forum held on 8 August 2018;
  • an online public survey during October 2018;
  • targeted consultations with state and territory governments; and
  • advice from an Expert Advisory Group.
An evidence review commissioned to inform the development of the Strategy - The current state of women’s health in Australia - provides an overview of the health and wellbeing of Australian women and girls. The evidence review can be provided upon request – please email preventive.policy@health.gov.au
