Welcome to ALSWH
The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health
The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (also known as Women’s Health Australia) is the largest, longest-running project of its kind ever conducted in Australia. The population-based survey explores the factors contributing to the health and wellbeing of over 57,000 Australian women in four cohorts. Their data provides invaluable information about the health of women across the lifespan. Since its inception in 1996, ALSWH has informed federal and state government policies across a wide range of issues. The Australian Government Department of Health funds the Study, and it is jointly managed by the University of Queensland and the University of Newcastle.
