Chronic disease in younger women survey

Much of the current policy planning and chronic condition programs, courses and services focus on the ageing population, but increasingly younger women are developing chronic diseases.  


The Women’s Centre for Health Matters is therefore conducting a community consultation survey with ACT women aged 18-50 years to find out their experiences of chronic disease and accessing appropriate services and supports in the ACT.  

WCHM is seeking to explore;

  •             Younger women’s knowledge and experience programs, courses, and services to provide information and support to those with chronic diseases;
  •             Which information, services, and support are relevant to younger women living with chronic disease – including their suitability and the age-appropriateness for younger women with chronic diseases; and
  •             The gaps and barriers that might exist, and ideas to improve younger women’s access to and involvement in responses that assist them to manage their conditions in their life stage.


All survey information is confidential. The survey will close on 26 May 2017.
