Celebrating 25 years of helping women across Australia

Events 6 Jun 2017

Jean Hailes for Women's Health is marking its silver anniversary, celebrating 25 years since the organisation's first medical clinic opened in 1992. Since then, Jean Hailes has grown into one of Australia's leading not-for-profit organisations, committed to improving women's knowledge and understanding of complex health issues.

Jean Hailes is different from most organisations thanks to its three fully integrated units: The medical centres and the Jean Hailes Research Unit (a formal partnership with Monash University) feed current evidence-based information to the Translation, Education & Communication Unit. As a result, millions of women of all ages and life stages not only have access to some of the country's leading health professionals but they can also access free, unbiased and trusted information through Jean Hailes websites, social media channels, magazines and printed health materials.

In 2016, Jean Hailes' ongoing commitment to helping all women prioritise their health was recognised by the federal government. Now Jean Hailes is the official digital gateway to women's health and wellbeing in Australia.

"We're so proud to be celebrating 25 years of helping women right across Australia," says executive director Janet Michelmore AO. The organisation was named in honour of Ms Michelmore's mother, the late Dr Jean Hailes AM, for her tireless work in the women's health sector.

"We will continue to offer something for everyone, preventing disease and providing best-practice management options. It has to be a whole-of-life investment. This saves lives and money and is the best buy in the health sector."
