Women in their mid-life to later years are a highly diverse and growing population who make an valuable contribution to our community. The Women’s Mid-life to Later Years Strategy 2019-2023 aims to increase the visibility of and enhance the specialist services we provide to women in their mid-to-later years. We will continue our work in partnership with the health system to advocate for increased resources to ensure women receive responsive, dedicated, women-centred healthcare.

Prevention of Violence Against Women strategy

Prevention of Violence Against Women Strategy 2017-2021

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. 

Submission to the Royal Commission into Family Violence

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. 

Reconciliation Action Plan 2020-2021 

The Women's Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan is underpinned by our genuine commitment to promote reconciliation by building relationships, respect and trust between the Women's and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, their families, our staff and communities.
