The Auckland Women’s Health Council is a voluntary organisation of individual women and women’s groups who have an interest in and commitment to women’s health issues. The organisation was formed in 1988 to provide a voice on women’s health issues in the Auckland region.
The Auckland Women’s Health Council is a feminist organisation. We believe:
- Women users of health services have the right to make informed decisions regarding their own health care and treatment
- Women have the right to the information necessary to enable them to make informed decisions
- Health care must be accessible, affordable and available as well as culturally appropriate and acceptable to women
- Consumer participation on all decision-making processes for health care services is essential.
Our goal is to provide an independent feminist voice focused on women’s/family health and health services in Auckland.
