National Women’s Health Survey: have your say
The Women’s Health Survey, the only national survey focusing on women’s health behaviour and information needs, is underway for the third year.
Run by national not-for-profit organisation Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, the survey asks women about a range of health issues, including body image, mental health, sex, relationships, weight, and healthy living.
Last year’s survey revealed that Australian women are most worried about gaining weight, but their doctors think they are more concerned about their mental health.
Thousands of women across Australia from different life stages, ages and background have responded to the survey in previous years.
The responses are collated anonymously and statistically analysed, and used to develop free resources on a wide range of issues for health professionals, government and women.
The survey can be accessed at bit.ly/jeanhailessurvey, and takes around 10 minutes to complete.
