Priorities for Victorian Women’s Health 2014-2018

Clear disparities in health outcomes exist for Victorian women. To address this the Victorian women’s health sector is seeking commitment to the development of a comprehensive women’s health policy and action platform for 2014–2018. This platform includes five specific actions from government to reduce the burden of ill health and disease for better health outcomes for Victorian women. These are:

  1. Development of a statewide sexual and reproductive health strategy.
  2. Investment and leadership in the primary prevention of violence against women.
  3. Research and action on women in a changing society, specifically the impacts of climate change on the health of Victorian women
  4. Development of a gendered mental health and wellbeing plan.
  5. Further investment in the Victorian Women’s Health Program to implement initiatives arising from the actions above
