Welcome to ALSWH
Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health

The Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health (known as Women’s Health Australia to its participants) 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 and Aged Care funds the Study, and it is jointly managed by the University of Queensland and the University of Newcastle.

ALSWH is recruiting!

Many women have migrated to Australia from South, Southeast, and Northeast Asian countries since we first started this cohort in 1996.  There are women from these ancestries who are also born in Australia. We are especially looking for women from these ancestries to join the Study. We need your voices to make sure our Study represents all Australian women. Please visit our study recruitment page to read the participant information statement and find out if you or someone you know may be eligible.
