AFMW has made a submission to the National Women’s Health Policy Consultation highlighting issues of importance including violence (both domestic and occupational), gender equity and improving the responsiveness of the health system to the specific needs of women and groups of women most at risk. It recommends a focus on prevention, the use of a strong and emerging evidence base and a lifecourse approach, and is underpinned by the key principles of the AFMW philosophy – caring, respect, service, equity, equality, human rights, gender competence and development.
