Good Health Down South Regional Strategy

Good Health Down South 2021-2025 is a four-year strategy for sexual and reproductive health promotion in the Southern Metropolitan Region. The strategy identifies the key sexual and reproductive health issues facing women and people across the region and priority populations that experience a disproportionate burden of poor health outcomes due to structural inequality.

Good Health Down South 2021 - 2025 identifies evidence-based mechanisms for reducing health inequalities and improving outcomes through a Theory of Change, as well as a rigorous evaluation framework. The strategy will be implemented through a cross-sector partnership that we aim to grow and strengthen over the course of the next four years.

The strategy reflects extensive consultation with local government, community health organisations and other health promotion agencies, and builds upon the achievements of the first regional strategy for sexual and reproductive health, 2018 - 2021.

WHISE would like to acknowledge and thank our many partners and stakeholders for their input into the development of Good Health Down South 2021 - 2025. We look forward to working together to improve women's sexual and reproductive health outcomes across the region.

If you have questions or feedback, or would like to join the Good Health Down South partnership, please contact our Health Promotion Officer, Laura Riccardi lriccardi@whise.org.au

Good Health Down South 2021-2025 is supported by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.

Sexual and Reproductive Health Regional Data - Southern Metropolitan Region

WHISE has compiled a number of regional data snapshots to provide an overview of the sexual and reproductive health status of women in the SMR.

The snapshots provide insight into the most recently available data and information about contraception, fertility management, unintended pregnancy, sexually transmissible infections, cervical screening, HPV immunisation, negotiating consent, young people and safe sex, and sexual assault.
