This grant opportunity will contribute to implementation of the National Women’s Health Strategy 2020-2030 (the Strategy) which outlines a national approach to improving health outcomes for all women and girls, particularly those at greatest risk of poor health.

The 2022-23 March Budget allocated funds for community-led initiatives and organisations to support the health of disadvantaged and marginalised Australian women and girls (as per page 114 of the 2022-23 Budget Paper No 2).

The objective of this grant opportunity is to support innovative approaches to trialling new initiatives, or expanding existing health promotion activities that focus on improving health literacy, reducing risk, and improving health outcomes within priority population groups (as identified in the Strategy). Preference will be given to initiatives that address clear unmet health needs as identified in the Strategy.

The intended outcomes of the grant opportunity are to:

  • improve women and girl’s health among priority population groups;
  • improve women and girl’s access to health information, regardless of location, socio-economic status, age, background or disability; 
  • reduce the incidence of preventable mortality and morbidity caused by health inequalities and specific women’s population group health issues; and
  • improve health literacy among priority population groups of women and girls, including increased understanding of risk and opportunities for improving health.
