2024 WA Women’s Health Conference

Call for Abstracts

The 2024 WA Women’s Health Conference will not only showcase and celebrate what’s working to advance women’s health outcomes but will set and share new pathways for change. It’s an important opportunity to reflect on our achievements and point the way firmly forward for further progress.

As the peak body for women’s community health services, we’re committed to improving health outcomes for all women in Western Australia.  To do this we must address critical areas of health inequity including sexual and reproductive health, mental health and wellbeing, and gendered violence and sexism.  Effective collaboration, meaningful partnerships, and evidence-based practice are also essential to achieving better health and wellbeing outcomes for women.  

To this end, the conference will explore advancements in women’s health and wellbeing through the following areas of focus: 

Towards equity

Taking a life course approach

Focus on prevention

Growing the evidence base
