Females experience different health outcomes than males and there are variances in health outcomes across female population sub-groups. The general health status of women can have lasting impacts for themselves as well as the health and well-being of families and the greater community. Contemporary Women’s Health Issues examines existing issues in women’s health and well-being in Australia. Factors influencing women’s health are investigated, including the social determinants, biomedical risk factors and behavioural risk factors of health, addressing the gender bias that pervades health care. Students explore theoretical frameworks for these determinants of health, using knowledge acquired in their own health discipline.
