This companion report represents the views of ACT women with disabilities, who comprised 30 percent of the total respondents to the original health and wellbeing information survey. Not being able to access a diverse spectrum of information in a variety of formats can limit the extent to which a woman with a disability can make informed decision about her health. Considering that women are often the primary information seekers and decision makers for their families health as well, not being able to access the information they need in the most appropriate format can have ever further reaching consequences. It is WCHM’s hope that these companion reports will improve understanding of particular groups of women in the ACT in order to facilitate health and wellbeing information provision that is responsive to their needs.
