From May to July, 2016, WCHM conducted a community consultation survey around women’s health utilisation. This was an opportunity for women to share their voices and let us know what is working and not working for them when seeking to maintain good health. The survey was open to women aged 16 and over, who live and work in the ACT.
The goals of the survey were:
- How do women understand and manage their health needs?
- Which health services are being utilised and whether there are barriers to that access?
- What are women’s preferred methods of seeking health information and are there barriers to information seeking?
The survey results are currently in the process of being analysed.
