This annual Women’s Health Survey researches the health experiences, needs and behaviours of Australian women. It examines gaps in women’s health information and identifies future health needs of women - as identified by women themselves. It also explores and describes women's current health experiences and behaviours. The snapshot summary reveals that a significant proportion of women in Australia are not receiving the health information and support they need. The report includes the impact of COVID-19 and the bushfires.

The survey sample was largely English-speaking university-educated women who were born in Australia, weighted for age and education to be more representative of the national population. Too few respondents identified as being from a CALD background or Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander so data must be interpreted with caution since it has been reported that CALD women have been significantly impacted by the pandemic.
