News and Events
Women’s Health West, along with plenty of help from our partners, launched a resource about the prevention of violence against women at the Newport Substation in June.
‘Act To Prevent Men’s Violence Against Women: a Guide for Community Action’ aims to support community groups in Melbourne’s west to take action to prevent men’s violence against women.
In late April, the second iteration of our regional sexual and reproductive health strategy for Melbourne’s west, Action for Equity, was launched by the Minister for Health, Jill Hennessy MP.
People, and in particular women, in the western region of Melbourne have poorer sexual and reproductive health outcomes when compared to other regions in Victoria. This is particularly the case in relation to sexually transmitted infections, teenage fertility, and cervical screening rates. Despite this, and our rapid population growth out west, our region still lacks a dedicated sexual health clinical service.
