The network aims to address key areas, including:

  • Enabling opportunities for collaboration across the network
  • Supporting research, and translation of research into practice, of topics affecting women and infants, issues that broadly affect the community but need to be viewed differently when patients are women, and research that utilises a gender lens more effectively
  • Identifying and disseminating relevant funding opportunities
