Women's Health Tasmania

Women's Health Tasmania is a state-wide, non-profit, community health promotion organisation, formerly known as Hobart Women’s Health Centre.

Women's Health Tasmania recognise the World Health Organisation's definition of Health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".

Women’s Health Tasmania is run by women, for women, providing a safe, supportive environment.

The organisation’s vision is for Tasmanian women to be informed, supported and active decision makers in their own health and wellbeing. Women's Health Tasmania advocates on behalf of women to both State and Commonwealth governments, on a range of legislation and policies impacting on women’s health. The organisation’s knowledge and expertise is based on almost 30 years experience working with, and for, Tasmanian women.

Women's Health Tasmania is based in Hobart and seeks to increase its reach and the range of services, to all women, particularly those at risk of poor health outcomes. In recent years, regional work has developed as a result of requests from other services. This has led to specific programmes and professional development based on need.
