AHRA Women's Health Research Translation Network

The AHRA National Women’s Health Research, Translation and Impact Network is a peak body in women’s health with a Steering Committee nominated from across NHMRC-accredited Advanced Health Research Translation Centres and Centres for Innovation in Regional Health.

We work from prevention to cure and from preconception to the end of life, across all settings and populations nationally with grassroots engagement and national leadership and reach. This national collaboration which spans community, health services and academic institutions, will boost national and international collaboration on women’s health and research, build health workforce capacity, develop leaders in women’s health, and advance research and translation to deliver impact and better health for Australian women.

WHRTN is a broad national collaboration led by international multidisciplinary leaders in women’s health, nominated by NHMRC-accredited Centres.
