The purpose of the 10 Point Plan of Action is to set a policy agenda for improving the health and wellbeing of all Western Australian women through targeted strategies.
The 10 Point Plan proposes a broad approach, embedded in the social determinants of health and gender equality principles, that can effectively take in to account multi-dimensional factors not limited to age but also inclusive of Aboriginality; cultural; religious and linguistic diversity; disability; sexual identity; geographic location and socio-economic status. This approach is also consistent with the Victorian Women’s Health 10 Point Plan 2010-2014 and South Australia’s Women’s Health Action Plan Report Card 2009. The Plan advocates a system of regular monitoring and feedback. It also supports positive outcomes for women and sets standards for good practice.
The purpose of the 10 Point Plan of Action is to set a policy agenda for improving the health and wellbeing of all Western Australian women through targeted strategies. The Plan provides the rationale for why women’s health and wellbeing matters. It proposes a policy framework premised on social determinants and gender equality, and the process through which the recommendations of the Plan can be achieved.
The current consultation to implement the 10 Point Plan of Action commenced in August 2012 and is the first of its kind in Western Australia.
A summary of the research and consultations are collected in the report that was presented to representatives of the major political parties on 8 February at an afternoon tea held at the Women’s Health and Family Services. Click below for the report and photos from the event:
