National network planned for women’s health research

WAHTN, along with Australia’s other nine Research Translation Centres, under the auspices of the Australian Health Research Alliance, have come together to address priority areas for women and girls across physical and mental health and to support career advancement for women in health and medical research.

A Women’s Health Research, Translation and Impact Network (WHRTN) has been formed which has received funding of $5 million over five years from the Morrison Government, the Hon Greg Hunt MP and the Medical Research Future Fund.

This national collaboration across community, health services and academic institutions will boost national and international collaboration on women’s health, build health workforce capacity, develop leaders in women’s health, and advance research and translation to deliver impact and better health for Australian women.
