Women’s health is a specialised area that reaches beyond sexual and reproductive health. The Women’s Health theme encompasses prevention through to cure and preconception through to the end of life. Researchers, clinicians, educators, administrators and health consumers come together to enhance knowledge generation and knowledge translation to improve health care delivery and health outcomes for women in Queensland.
The Women’s Health theme leaders are the Health Translation Queensland representatives on
preconception, pregnancy, postpartum and intrapartum health of women and babies
chronic disease and preventative health including cancer and heart disease
healthy lifestyle, nutrition, physical activity and the prevention of obesity
violence and abuse
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health
