National not-for-profit organisation Jean Hailes for Women's Health today launched one of Australia's biggest surveys on women's health.
Now in its third year, the survey is a chance for every woman to fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle on a wide range of health issues including body image, mental health, sex, relationships, weight and healthy living. Every survey response counts.
What is the purpose of the survey?
Developed and designed by Jean Hailes for Women's Health, this is Australia's only national survey focusing on women's health behaviour and information needs. Thousands of women across Australia from different life stages, ages and background responded to the survey in previous years.
What happens to the responses?
The thousands of responses will be collated anonymously and statistically analysed. Every response is essential to shine the light on health information needs. Material will be developed for health professionals, government and women in the form of free resources on a wide range of issues. The content will also form the backbone of Jean Hailes' annual Women's Health Week in September.
How do women access the survey?
Please visit bit.ly/jeanhailessurvey (opens in a new window). It will take around 10 minutes. All responses are anonymous. Any survey participant can also opt in to have the final survey results sent to them later in the year.
There are prizes too!
Survey respondents can enter the draw to win two free 6-month memberships to Fernwood Fitness* (so they can exercise with a friend!). A winner will be drawn from each state/territory for one of eight membership packages. (*T&C's apply)
