Women’s Health Week

Women’s health week is a nationwide campaign run by Jean Hailes. It is a week dedicated to all women across the county that aims at inspiring good health choices.

The first women’s health week was organised in 2013 when it was discovered that there is no dedicated event devoted to women’s health in Australia. Growing each year the event has over 100,000 participants with thousands of events across Australia.

This week is important for shining the light on women’s health issues. It promotes women to reflect on their lifestyles and put their health first. If you want more information about women’s health week visit their website by clicking here.
