This Women’s Health Information Package provides resources on gender research as it applies to disasters and it also supplies resources and links to web pages for disaster prevention information that focuses on gender. The inclusion of this information is aimed at raising awareness about inequality and the gendered nature of disaster experience. It is hoped that this information will help to facilitate equality in the recovery and reconstruction process, and that it may be used and built upon for future learning and emergency management purposes.
While it is not an all encompassing document, it is hoped that the Women’s Health Information Package on Victorian bushfires and disaster situations (PDF 360KB) will assist in the initial and ongoing stages of recovery for those affected by the bushfires.
