The aim of the Strategy is to improve the health and wellbeing of Western Australian women and particularly those women who are at most risk. It promotes substantive equality and social inclusion by focusing on priority areas and particular high risk groups of women that need targeted action. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women experience poorer health across almost all health areas compared to non-Indigenous women. As such, the health of Aboriginal women in Western Australia is the benchmark for all women in the State.
