Better reproductive and sexual heath for women and girls
We regret to inform you that the Australian Reproductive Health Alliance (ARHA) ceased operation on 30 September 2011.
The decision to close an organisation which achieved so much for the advancement of the status of women and girls through the promotion of improved sexual and reproductive health was taken in sadness. We would like to thank all those – members of the Board and ARHA staff, patrons, chairs and members of the Australian Parliamentary Group on Population and Development, donors and volunteers – who worked so hard over the years to sustain the organisation and contribute to its considerable achievements.
ARHA has been privileged to act as a critical non-partisan body promoting better reproductive health for women and girls in Australia and throughout the region. We deeply regret that we are no longer able to do so.
Women’s Plan Foundation will continue the tradition of a sole focus on advocacy in this important area. You can find more about women's sexual and reproductive health on its website at www.womensplans.org
CARE Australia also has a wealth of information about bringing lasting change to communities by empowering women and girls, which you can access at www.care.org.au
If your query relates to the activities of the Australian Parliamentary Group on Population and Development please contact the office of Senator Claire Moore (Senator.Moore@aph.gov.au) who chairs the Group.
For information on the history of ARHA please browse this website, which will operate until 30 September 2013, or visit the manuscripts section of the National Library of Australia in Canberra, where ARHA’s records have been deposited and are publicly available.
