The Jean Hailes story

Dr Jean Hailes

Founded in 1992, Jean Hailes for Women’s Health reflects the enduring legacy of GP Dr Jean Hailes.

Jean had a far-sighted vision to improve the quality of women’s lives and give them practical information based on the best available evidence.

She is credited with pioneering menopause management in Australia and established the first women’s health clinic dedicated to midlife and menopause in 1971.

Jean was passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of all women. Her expertise and determination to make a difference not only shaped hugely positive outcomes during her lifetime, they also inspired the creation of the Jean Hailes Foundation (now known as Jean Hailes), following her passing in 1988.

Dr Jean Hailes’s ‘no nonsense’ mantra
  • Know the facts
    How it affects your body and emotions and what can be done 
  • Keep yourself fit
    In order to have a happy and productive life
  • Find a good doctor to talk to
    If his or her attitude doesn’t suit you, find one who does
  • Ask for a second opinion
    It is your body and your life
