The category Special care > Women's Health features health products and services that meet the specific needs of women.
Women have unique health needs, both physical and psychological. Many of these relate to stages of life such as pregnancy, motherhood, menopause and old age. There are also many conditions that predominantly affect women such as osteoporosis, breast cancer and eating disorder.
There are a large number of dedicated women's health service providers, public, private and non-profit.
The Australian Women's Health Network and the Multicultural Centre for Women's Health are two of the leading organisations that focus on women's health issues. The Commonwealth Government's National Women's Health Policy 2010 aims to ensure that all Australian women have better health and health care.
