The major focus of the conference was to continue the work of getting women's health as a priority issue onto the public agenda. It provided an opportunity for individuals, organisations and services involved and concerned with women's health to contribute to international dialogue, share ideas, knowledge and practice. Delegates examined the changing social, economic, cultural and political contexts affecting women's health, as well as policy and practice that promote better health outcomes for women.
Over 600 delegates attended presentations on the Australian Women's Health Network (AWHN) priority areas: women's economic health and well being; women's mental health and well-being; preventing violence against women; women's sexual and reproductive health and improving access to publicly funded and financially accessible services. Staff member Jane Burns, ran a HealthInfoNet cafe at this conference. Many delegates said that the HealthInfoNet was one of their 'favourites'! The cafe provided the chance for those who had not heard of the resource, to discover the benefits of its use. During the proceedings the HealthInfoNet launched the Summary of Indigenous women's health and the AWHN launched The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women's Health Strategy.HealthInfoNet cafes
