The seven local government areas thatcomprise WHW’s catchment are Brimbank,Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melbourne,Melton, Moonee Valley and Wyndham
Women’s Health West (WHW) is committed to improvingthe health, safety and wellbeing of women in Melbourne’sdiverse western region. We support individual women andcommunities, and work collaboratively with governmentand other agencies across the west and statewide.This means providing and improving access to excellentquality, appropriate and responsive services, while workingtowards improving the status of women, giving womenvoice through our projects, programs and activities, andpaying particular attention to the multiple factors thatcontribute to gender - and other - inequities.WHW regards health as much more than the absence of illness or injury. We believe that health and wellbeing aredetermined by a range of environmental, economic, social,political and cultural factors including gender, ethnicity,class, age and ability.
Despite some advances, women’s specic health needs
are still too often played down, under-researched, over-medicalised and under-funded. Women make up theoverwhelming majority of adult victims/survivors of familyviolence. Statistically, women are also more likely tosuffer reproductive and mental health problems, includingdepression and stress, especially that associated withfamily violence and their role as carers for children andolder people. A range of social factors impact on women’s health andwellbeing, these include sexual and family violence, socialisolation and poverty. Additional factors such as racism,dispossession, homophobia and discrimination affect thehealth of particular groups, such as immigrant and refugeewomen, Indigenous women, lesbians and women withdisabilities.
