WHISE has identified key messages that can be communicated broadly by partner organisations about the COVID-19 pandemic and gender across our key priority areas of work.

In September 2019, WHISE and partners of Good Health Down South profiled four superheroes who work to improve the sexual and reproductive health of women in the southeast, as well as shared important information and dispel myths about sexually transmitted infections, contraception, abortion, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and other sexual health concerns.

16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is a global campaign operating at a local, regional, national and international level to end gender-based violence. It is not a single event but rather a movement - a collective of initiatives demonstrating the solidarity of gender-based violence activists worldwide.

This March, for Endometriosis Awareness Month, Women’s Health Services across Victoria alongside peak body Gender Equity Victoria, are banding together to shine a much-needed spotlight on endometriosis (endo), a condition that affects one in nine women in Australia.

Taking real action so that all women in the south east are safe, healthy and thriving.

A WHISE call to all leaders at this Federal Election to invest in primary prevention and equity so that all women in the South East have safe and healthy lives.
