Analysis of Victorian Women's Health Atlas data

The Victorian Women's Health Atlas!/ is a resource of publicly available data at the LGA level across Victoria. Medication abortion and long term contraception data have been newly introduced to the resource, allowing for highly granular local data describing trends in access and showing gaps in availability. This dataset will allow a student (Honours or Masters) to develop a research question about access to sexual and reproductive health and other services in Victoria and analyse data to develop response. The supervisor will facilitate a process of collaboration with the team at Women's Health Victoria to be in contact with services in regional parts of Victoria to understand their particular questions, so that the research question that is developed and addressed in this project will be useful and relevant to services and can answer questions of relevance to the population in their cachement area. At the end of the project, we will aim to facilitate an opportunity to present findings to Women's Health Victoria and services that have been engaged in research question development. This project therefore has a health policy and advocacy focus as the analysis will be used to develop policy relevant recommendations for addressing access gaps. The student will lead on analysis and visualisation of data as part of their thesis, once the research questions of interest have been identified in partnership with supervisors and Women's Health Victoria partners.
