The Women's Prevention of Violence Against Women Strategy provides a framework to unite the Women’s existing activities and guide our future work on the prevention of violence against women. Our objective to be the leading hospital in the prevention of, and response to, violence as a women’s health issue will be achieved through actions that build our capacity and capability to identify and respond to violence against women.
As a statewide leader in addressing family violence as a health issue, the Women’s made a submission and recommendations to the Royal Commission into Family Violence in May 2015. The Women’s acknowledges that hospitals have a unique role in identifying women and children at risk and linking them with support.
