RANZCOG 2022-23 pre-budget submission

RANZCOG, the peak body for obstetrics and gynaecology and women’s health in Australia, has made a 2022-23 pre-budget submission.


The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

15 June 2022

In our submission, the College calls for the establishment of a National Council for Women’s Health to help deliver the initiatives and objectives outlined in the National Women’s Health Strategy 2020–2030. “To realise these objectives, it is crucial to adopt a national approach to the planning and delivery of key initiatives and activities to a diverse range of stakeholders,” RANZCOG’s submission says. “The Council will provide advice in the development of a monitoring and reporting framework to support the Women’s Health Strategy and to guide its implementation.”
The College’s submission also proposes the development and delivery of the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Education and Training (OGET) Program to help “reduce barriers in accessing training and aid in ongoing capacity-building and succession planning within rural and remote communities and ensure obstetrics and gynaecology services remain consistently available to these communities.”
In relation to the National Action Plan for Endometriosis, RANZCOG’s submission identifies an ongoing need to increase clinician awareness of and access to the Endometriosis Guideline, as well as to develop effective implementation and dissemination strategies.
