Addressing gender inequity is important as it affects health and wellbeing, and is the root cause of family violence. cohealth works to prevent violence against women through targeted programs, influencing policy and designing joint actions in partnership with specialist women’s services.
cohealth has a Diversity & Inclusion Strategy for 2020 – 2023. This strategy articulates cohealth’s commitment to provide culturally safe and inclusive services and work environments as a matter of core business. It sets out our diversity and inclusion vision, strategic goals and the steps we will take to impact change.
