WHO WE ARE

The Immigrant Women's Health Service (IWHS) was established in 1987 to address the needs of immigrant and refugee women in regard to health information and health services.

The IWHS has two centres, one in Fairfield and another in Cabramatta. A team of bi-lingual and bi-cultural workers help, support and advocate for migrant women from different communites.

WHAT WE STRIVE FOR

The IWHS's purpose is to empower women so that they can make choices which will enable them to lead healthy, fulfilling lives in a new country.

WHAT WE DO

Conduct health information workshops covering such topics as preventative health care, body awareness, nutrition, stress management, HIV/AIDS, depression, contraceptions, and domestic violence.

Run health education and support groups for women to discuss issues in a supportive environment.

Provide a free Women's Health Clinic for breast checks, pap tests, continence assessments, pregnancy tests, advice on pregnancy, menopause, contraception, and other related Women's Health issues. All services are provided by a qualified Women's Health Nurse.

Conduct classes that aim to enhance women's physical and emotional well-being (eg. Tai Chi, Aerobics, Crafts).
