Partnerships and collaborations are incredibly important to the work we carry out at Jean Hailes. Our partners help to ensure that women have the information, resources and confidence to make the changes they need for a healthier life.
The Australian Government Department of Health is the Principal Partner of Jean Hailes for Women's Health, working strategically with Jean Hailes to improve knowledge about women's health in Australia across the lifespan.

Primary Health Network Partners
Jean Hailes recognises the important role Primary Health Networks play in ensuring women are informed and able to seek the right health care from the right places at the right times. Jean Hailes actively seeks partnerships with Primary Health Networks across Australia, to work together to improve health literacy and access to women's health information.
Optimal health in the workplace drives employee engagement, productivity and retention. We also work in partnership with corporate companies that have a vested interest in women's health. Their strategic investment of funds, resources and skills enables us to collaboratively develop programs that enrich women's lives.
Jean Hailes proactively seeks to partner on an ongoing basis with corporate organisations that are committed to improving knowledge about women's health in Australia throughout the various stages of their lives.
We also partner with corporate organisations on specific projects or campaigns such as Women's Health Week in September each year, or organisations that can bring distribution networks that significantly extend the reach of our work in priority settings or population groups nationally.
Partnering with research communities enables us to engage in joint research projects to meet community and health professional needs. We translate research outcomes to produce highly effective educational initiatives. The Jean Hailes Research Unit is a formal partnership with Monash University, located in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
Jean Hailes for Women's Health is proud to have partnered with Liptember, a campaign that educates the community on women's mental health and raises funds towards specific mental health programs. Through this partnership, an innovative new project will explore what determines good mental health in older women. Research will inform development of resources and programs that will be shared with health workers and men and women in the community.
Jean Hailes for Women's Health and Bicycle Network have teamed up again in 2018. As a Major Community Partner, Bicycle Network works with Jean Hailes to promote messages around the importance of physical activity and general health and wellbeing.
The partnership extends to Women's Health Week, held in the first week of September. The national campaign encourages all women in Australia to put their health first and provides tips and resources to help women make positive changes.
