Experts in Our Health

What is the aim of the Experts in Our Health project? 

The Experts in Our Health project is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services, and will empower women with disabilities to improve their knowledge, choice and control over their access to health services.

The project has employed 12 women with lived experience of disabilities to form the Experts by Experience team. The team will develop and design resources and training and deliver it across Victoria empowering other women with disabilities. The resources and training will also be used to help build the capacity of health service providers who provide services to women with disabilities.

Who are we working with on the project?

WDV is partnering with Women’s Health Loddon Mallee, Women’s Health in the North and Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health to deliver the Experts in Our Health project.

When is the project happening?

The project is funded from January 2021 – June 2022.
