Read our current Strategic Plan:
Inspired by changing times and a desire for a women’s health service for women by women in Gippsland funding was secured to develop a proposal for a women’s health service. Under the banner of the Gippsland Women’s Health Project consultations commenced across Gippsland in January 1991 and concluded in September the same year which then saw the first allocation of funds for Gippsland Women’s Health Service. From small but mighty beginnings in 1992 Gippsland Women’s Health continues to provide access to information, education and programs to reduce barriers and advocate for Gippsland Women.
