  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Menopause

The webinar will be presented by Dr. Talat Uppal from Women’s Health Road in Sydney and Dr. Nisha Khot from Djerriwarrh Health Service in Victoria.

Harmony Alliance Update 2020: The Year in Review and Looking Ahead

Year 2019-2020 has been a big year for the Harmony Alliance; we have expanded our networks, strengthened our policy and advocacy work, and took new leaps in our collective achievements. This has all been made possible by the continued engagement and contributions of our incredible membership. We have also faced unprecedented challenges, like many others around the world, due to the current COVID-19 global pandemic. Migrant and Refugee women and their families (both in Australia and overseas) have been significantly impacted in a multitude of ways, existing systemic inequalities have been laid bare, and new forms of discrimination and disadvantage have emerged. In the times of physical distancing, we took this virtual opportunity to celebrate our successes, stand together in solidarity, and strengthen our resolve to continue working for an equitable future for migrant and refugee women in Australia.

Here’s a recording of the update provided by Maria Dimopoulos (Chair), Gulnara Abbasova (Executive Officer) and Sana Ashraf (Senior Policy Officer) of the Harmony Alliance, followed by a Q & A session!
