WCHM’s objectives are to improve the health and wellbeing of women in the ACT and surrounding regions, particularly those vulnerable to disadvantage. Our work is guided by the social determinants of health framework. This means that we believe that each woman’s environment and life circumstances will affect her health and wellbeing outcomes.

We work to achieve the Centre’s mission – empowering women to enhance their health and wellbeing – through a gendered approach.

The Centre’s current, ongoing and past projects, events, campaigns and initiatives fall within the main categories of health promotion, social research, capacity building, community development, information provision and health education, and advocacy and by working across sectors.
