Australian longitudinal study on women's health

 

Overview

The Australian longitudinal study on women's health (ALSWH) is a comprehensive health survey which has been running for 17 years and has over 40,000 participants across three age groups; 18-23, 45-50 and 70-75 years.

The ALSWH is currently recruiting a new group of women aged 18-23 to continue the study. In particular, the ALSWH is encouraging participation from Australian women living in regional and rural areas, including Indigenous communities. In the existing older age groups in the study, the ALSWH has twice the number of rural and regional participants compared to urban women - a ratio which the study would like to repeat with the latest recruitment of young women.

The recruitment of women aged 18-23 is happening at least until the end of 2013. Participants will then be surveyed once a year for as long as funding permits.

The project is consistently evaluated by the Department of Gender, Health and Ageing and is covered by human research ethics clearances from the University of Newcastle, University of Newcastle, The Department of Human Services, and the Department of Gender, Health and Ageing.

Please contact Ashleigh Baker from the ALSWH for more details.
