Feedback from ACT women in over 10 of WCHM’s reports over many years has continued to highlight the difficulty for women in finding credible and trustworthy information online about their health and wellbeing, and services and supports – and particularly local ACT information. Because women are the primary seekers of health and wellbeing information, not only for themselves, but also for their children and other family members, it is important for them to have access to accurate and reliable health and wellbeing information so that they are able to make informed choices about their own and their family’s health and access services and supports relevant to their needs.
The ACT Women’s Health Hub is a direct response to this feedback, and is designed to be a central portal that provides links to already-existing, credible and trustworthy information about women’s health and wellbeing and to services in the ACT. It will also complement and link to the other WCHM websites already developed. You can visit the website at: www.actwomenshealthhub.org.au
