Tell Your Story Report Launch: Lived experiences of accessing contraception and abortion services in the Grampians region

Women’s Health Grampians is proud to announce the launch of Tell Your Story – a report capturing the lived experiences of 110 women and gender diverse people accessing contraception and abortion services in the Grampians region.

When comparing the number of regional patients who obtained contraception or abortion care, prescription data indicates a significant shortfall of local services. Tell Your Story builds on our long-term advocacy seeking to overcome service gaps and improve local service provision to meet patient need.

Tell Your Story invited women and gender diverse people aged 18-45 years living in our region to answer an anonymous survey, responses spanned all age groups and local government areas. Compiling these stories is providing a clear picture of what women value when seeking reproductive healthcare, how they feel about current levels of service and the changes they would like to see.

For the first time, we can provide a strong consumer voice to inspire change in public health planning, referral pathways, workforce support and development.

The launch event will take place in Horsham at
12.30-2.30pm Thursday 27th of June 2024
Federation University, Horsham Campus Auditorium,
 Or register to join the livestream online from 1pm
