Why we need a roadmap for women’s health in the pandemic era

Regardless of whether they had COVID-19 or not, close to half of Australian women say their physical and mental health has deteriorated since the pandemic began. This is just one finding of the insightful 2022 Jean Hailes’ National Women’s Health.
The survey was conducted in March-May 2022, attracting over 14,000 respondents, and for the first time was translated into simplified Chinese, Arabic and Vietnamese to include even more participants. This year’s survey focused on the pandemic, providing the most up-to-date snapshot of how Australian women and gender-diverse people are faring in a ‘COVID-19 normal’ environment.
Date:             6 September
Time:             8am for 8.15 start. Concludes 8.45.
Venue:          Dame Dorothy Tangney Alcove, Parliament House, Canberra
