New partnership creates Women's health portal

Date posted: 25 October 2013

The new Indigenous Women's health portal (, located on Edith Cowan University's, Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet web resource, aims to provide the health workforce and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with access to quality information.

The portal has been made possible with funds from Jean Hailes for Women's Health who have collaborated with the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet to provide the content to support and inform the efforts of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce. Jean Hailes is a leading not-for-profit women's health organisation offering easy-to-understand information and a range of free resources for women and health professionals across Australia.

HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Thomson, says of the partnership 'This project is a wonderful opportunity for both organisations to bring together their knowledge and expertise to provide in one place, freely accessible knowledge, resources and information about the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women which will support the workforce in improving health outcomes for women.'

Jean Hailes is launching the portal on Friday 25 October at the National Indigenous Women's Health workshop being held at Monash Medical Centre.
