On 26 June the ACT’s Minister for Health and Transport, Meegan Fitzharris, announced she would be leaving both the ministry and ACT Legislative Assembly. She said it was a decision that stemmed “from a desire to better balance my family life”.
WCHM worked closely with her and her office in advocating about women’s health and wellbeing, and particularly their sexual and reproductive health needs, and wishes her well in her future.
Chief Minister Andrew Barr announced that the new Health Minister will be Rachel Stephen-Smith and the new Transport Minister will be Chris Steel, while Mr Barr will take on Higher Education. We look forward to working with them.
