RANZCOG Women’s Health Summit

An event hosted by RANZCOG ( the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) gathered the top 100 influencers in the women’s health sector to share, discuss and dissect the most pressing challenges facing Australian women.

At the Women’s Health Summit, Health Minister Greg Hunt opened by announcing a commitment to the renewal of the national women’s health strategy and acknowledged the Summit as the catalyst to establishing 2020–2030 Women’s Health strategy. A 2.5-million dollar investment was also announced to support research into early diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis to align with endometriosis awareness month.

Shadow Minister Catherine King acknowledged that abortion access in Australia was ‘unfinished business’ and called for a broad gender equity-focused framework to lead the women’s health agenda.
