Launch of the National Endometriosis Action Plan

Endometriosis affects one in every ten Australian women, with the average diagnosis taking between seven to ten years. The plan was developed with medical specialists, endometriosis advocacy groups, women with endometriosis and their families, clinicians, researchers and parliamentarians.

In launching the action plan, Minister Hunt noted that while we were at the beginning of this journey, the plan — which outlines a comprehensive five year strategy — was a significant step forward for sufferers.
