An Introduction to Human Trafficking: Vulnerability, Impact and Action
The widespread contemporary exploitation of men, women and children is unacceptable to people of conscience the world over.

Invest in Women’s Health
Clear disparities in health outcomes exist in Western Australia, with different groups experiencing wellbeing and illness in unequal ways. Women are one of those groups. While Western Australian women are more likely to live longer than Western Australian men, their higher prevalence and incidence of non-fatal health problems result in more years lived with ill health and disability.
