National women’s health policy 2010

The ‘National Women’s Health Policy 2010’ was released on 29 December by the Australian Department of Health and Ageing. The policy seeks to continue to improve the health and wellbeing of Australian women, especially those at greatest risk of poor health. Priority is given to: (i) maintaining and developing health services and prevention programs to treat and avoid disease through targeting health issues that will have the greatest impact over the next 20 years, and (ii) aiming to address health inequities through broader reforms addressing the social determinants of health.
