The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare released its 2023 Report on Endometriosis, which revealed that 1 in 7 (14%) of women, girls and those assigned female at birth are diagnosed with endometriosis by the ages of 44-49 years. Meanwhile, the average diagnostic time remains between 6 to 8 years.
In the media, Endometriosis Australia CEO, Maree Davenport discussed the importance of raising awareness of the disease among GPs and nurses, in schools, workplaces and families.
Endometriosis Australia is the peak advocate for those living with endometriosis.
It’s about “access, equity, cost-effectiveness, and investment from both State and the Federal Government”, said Maree.
