Australian women have different health outcomes to Australian men. Many women and girls face major barriers to achieving their full health potential.

On Monday 4 March 2024, the Honourable Steven Miles MP, Premier of Queensland, and Honourable Shannon Fentiman MP, Minister for Health, Mental Health and Ambulance Services and Minister for Women launched the Queensland Women and Girls' Health Strategy 2032 [PDF 8388 KB].

The strategy is the first health policy of its kind in Queensland. It’s also a Signature Action under the Queensland Women’s Strategy 2022–27 [PDF 3883.96 KB].

The Queensland Government undertook extensive consultation and research to inform the strategy and its new initiatives.

An Investment Plan [PDF 6900 KB] supports the strategy. Nearly $250 million over the period to 2027–28 will help to address health inequity for women and girls.

We expect the Government will spend more than $1 billion over the next 5 years on women and girls' health and wellbeing programs and new services to better meet their needs.

The Queensland Government is committed to helping women and girls achieve their full health potential and achieving a gender equal Queensland.
