About Us

Njunalin ngaralanga dharawal wula wala nguradhanhay ngaliya

(Dharawal language)

 

We respect Aboriginal peoples as the first peoples and custodians of NSW

(English translation)

 

Welcome to Country

Welcome to Tharawal Lands. We would like to acknowledge the traditional owners, the Tharawal people, on whose lands we meet today. We would like to pay our respects to the elders past and present, and to acknowledge our younger generations, the future care takers and knowledge holders of our lands and culture. Walk softly and go in peace.

Vision

Equal Health Outcomes for Whole Community Wellbeing

 

Statement of Purpose

WILMA Women’s Health Centre is committed to enabling access to evidence based woman centred health and wellbeing through;

  • improving women’s health outcomes and self-efficacy through integrated care pathways;
  •  taking a gender informed, social view of health;
  •  offering trauma informed services and programs;
  •  implementing best practice prevention strategies in partnership with others; and
  •  applying the findings of research in order to innovate and develop highest quality approaches to health service delivery, health education and health promotion

 

Centre Philosophy

Women’s health is determined by a broad range of social, environmental, economic and biological factors and is affected by gender, discrimination, sex role stereotyping, age, ethnicity, racism, disability, sexuality, and sexual preference.

Essential elements of the health process are information, consultation, advocacy, and community development, encompassing health promotion, disease prevention, equity of access to appropriate and affordable services and illness treatment services.

WILMA Women’s Health Centre is committed to ensuring that all these factors are considered when providing services at the Centre.
 

Centre Objectives

  • Provide wholistic health care which recognises the physical, emotional, spiritual, social, economic, environmental, cultural, and political factors which effect the health of women and girls.
  • Emphasise and promote preventative health care through education, provision of written material, resources and innovative programs.
  • Recognise and challenge the effects of sex role stereotyping, sexism, gender, discrimination and patriarchy on women’s health and well being.
  • Provide a service which reflects the health needs of the whole of a woman’s life span and not just her reproductive life.
  • Provide health services within the context and with an understanding of the experiences and the realities of women living in the local government areas of Campbelltown, Camden & Wollondilly.
  • Operate from a feminist perspective.
  • Recognise the value of women’s own knowledge, skills and abilities.
  • Ensure that women and girls are fully informed of all their health care options and that their choice is fully respected and supported.
  • Actively encourage the empowerment of women and girls in the personal and social aspects of their lives.
  • Maintain an awareness of women’s health issues and to participate in, encourage  and promote research into women’s health.
  • Provide a range of traditional and alternative health care services.
  • Promote access to the service, through whatever means available, to all women regardless of their cultural background or heritage, disability, age, socio-economic status, sexuality or geographical isolation.
  • With other women, actively encourage and promote feminist views in debate and take action, as appropriate, to raise women’s health and women’s issues in the political and social context.
  • Provide affordable, confidential health care services run by women for women in a non-threatening, non-judgmental environment with an emphasis on preventative health care.
