Women's Health Week | 4 -10 September 2023


1st September 2023
Jean Hailes Women’s Health Week is a week dedicated to all women across Australia to make good health a priority.
Women's Health Week is a nation-wide campaign of events and online activities – all centred on improving women's health and helping you to make healthier choices. 
Every September, for one week, Women’s Health Week is a reminder to set aside time for your health and well-being. Make an appointment for a health check, get active, join an event or simply connect with other women. You don't have to do it alone.
Why Women's Health Week?
In 2013, realising that there was no event dedicated to women's health in Australia, Jean Hailes for Women's Health ran the very first national Women's Health Week. Thousands of women across Australia subscribed to take part in a week of events and online activities, learning more their health.
Now in its 10th year, Women's Health Week is a celebration of women in Australia, women from all walks of life. In 2021 (despite a second year impacted by lock-downs and restrictions), more than 128,000 women participated in 2277 events, over 54,000 women subscribed to the online campaign, and have reached over 3.6 million people via social media.
Women's Health Week is recognised as the biggest week for women’s health and well-being in Australia and takes place annually in the first week of September.
