Women’s Health Week has been a permanent fixture on the Australian health calendar since 2013. The week was founded by Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, which is the official Federal Government’s national digital gateway for women’s health.
Women’s Health Week (3 to 7 September 2018) is an opportunity for women, workplaces and communities to take the time to access and share evidence-based information that is aimed at promoting good health in ways that support sustained behaviour change.
Women’s Health Week continues to go from strength to strength, as the public and health care professionals recognise the benefits of taking time out to think about health issues. This year more than 60,000 women are expected to take part in over 1,500 events around the country. More than 25,000 have registered already to receive the free health-related content emailed to them every day of Women’s Health Week.

Terri Butler MP is pleased to be hosting a foreign aid forum with Senator the Hon Penny Wong, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, tomorrow.
“Mr Turnbull and the Liberals have cut over $11 billion from Australia’s international assistance budget,” Terri Butler said.
“In this year’s Budget alone, there is a further $140 million cut over the next three years.
“The contempt that this government has for foreign aid is shameful.
“A Shorten Labor Government will rebuild Australia’s international development assistance program.
“I am looking forward to hosting Senator Wong and the many Southsiders who are passionate about foreign aid to discuss this important issue,” she said.
The forum will take place at 10am on Wednesday, 25 July at the Holland Park Bowls Club.
