This companion report represents the views of the 144 young ACT women who responded to the original health and wellbeing information survey (comprising 22 percent of total respondents) and the eight young women who participated in focus group discussions. This report found that young women have unique concerns when choosing which source to obtain health and wellbeing information from. Primarily, young women are concerned about confidentiality, and will not use a source if they perceive it as not being respectful of their need for confidentiality, even if the information provided is trustworthy and useful. Secondly, young women want information that is tailored to them as an individual, providing information based on their social, historical and health circumstances. And finally, young women want a one-stop-shop where they can obtain all of the health and wellbeing information they need, or be assisted in navigating the ACT health system in order to identify the most appropriate information source. WCHM 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.
