Endo@Work Program

In an Australian government report, endometriosis is reported to cost Australian society $9.7 billion annually with two-thirds of these costs attributed to a loss in productivity with the remainder, approximately $2.5 billion being direct healthcare costs.

Further research is needed, but it’s our goal to start conversations with employers and employees about endometriosis in the workplace with the Endo@Work Program. More information coming soon!

Endometriosis Australia supported the efforts of Southern Cross University and Western Sydney University’s NICM Health Research Institute to conduct a national survey of 389 participants with a confirmed diagnosis of endometriosis.
The purpose: To examine the impact of endometriosis on an individual’s career and how workplace changes may influence management of endometriosis.

“That fact that an overwhelming majority of women with endometriosis have benefited from the shift to working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic is an important insight. I hope that more Australian employers will use this research to help support their employees who may be suffering from this terrible condition and to help them reach their full potential in the workplace,”

– Minister for Health and Aged Care, Greg Hunt
