Following consultations with sexual and reproductive health service providers and advocates, the state government has just released Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health: Key Priorities 2017-2020. The strategy, together with $6.6 million in new funding, is a step towards ensuring that all Victorian women, regardless of where they live and how much money they have, are given access to the sexual and reproductive health services and support they need.
The Strategy identifies four key priority areas for improvement including:
– Equitable access to high quality contraception and pregnancy termination services and information
– treatment and management of endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome and menopause
– fertility and conception awareness, and
– prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted infections.
