Report on major survey of women’s health and wellbeing in the ACT

  • Report on major survey of women’s health and wellbeing in the ACT image

Between November 2022 and February 2023, Women’s Health Matters (with the assistance of Carers ACT, amongst others) conducted a major survey of women’s health and wellbeing in the ACT, asking about experiences with health and health services, mental health, sexual and reproductive health, pregnancy and parenting, discrimination, violence and safety. In total, they collected valid responses from 1668 people.

The survey also asked people if they were carers, with just over one-sixth of respondents (17.5%) reporting they were.

The findings of the survey will now be used to make the state of women’s health and wellbeing in the ACT visible through high quality data, enabling Women’s Health Matters and community partners (like us) to advocate for gender responsive health and wellbeing services for all ACT women.
