These forums are aimed at both prevention and response service professionals working in the violence against women and sexual and reproductive health sectors in Victoria.

The forums are part of the Women’s Health Victoria’s Access and Equity series which have examined key sexual and reproductive health issues and part of Women's Health in the North's ongoing commitment to sexual and reproductive health, prevention of violence against and gender equity.
