Women’s Health in the South East (WHISE) welcomes the announcement from the Australian Labor Party that, if elected, they would deliver Australia’s first National Sexual and Reproductive Health strategy.

“We believe it’s essential that every woman has access to services and supports they need to ensure optimal health, regardless of their personal circumstances,” says Ms Kit McMahon, WHISE CEO.

On 31 December, the Settlement Services Program – run by WHISE for 11 years – will close.  WHISE will continue to run its programs and services to prevent violence against women, improve sexual and reproductive health and create a gender equitable society, however, the settlement program (including the WHISE volunteer home visitation program) will cease.

Today, leading Victorian experts from the Women’s Community Services Sector are launching a resource for business to help them take action to end family violence.

The resource will help workplaces choose the right training and consultancy services to build their capacity to address gender equity and family violence.
