Due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in Victoria, VicHealth has cancelled or postponed our upcoming public and invite-only events.

Our This Girl Can Week of activities across the state (originally scheduled to take place between 23 and 29 March 2020) is being postponed until further notice.

Based on the most up-to-date health and safety advice from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), we believe this is the most responsible option, given the threat COVID-19 poses to our community.

We want to support Victorian women through the This Girl Can – Victoria campaign as best we can in these changing circumstances. Where possible, we are exploring other ways of delivering some activities, such as via digital channels.

The continued health and wellbeing of Victorians is, as always, our absolute priority and we recognise the need to minimise close contact with other people and help slow the spread of the virus.

The current situation in Victoria presents new challenges for our communities.  Our teams are also thinking proactively about how we can best support Victorians, particularly those most vulnerable, to keep living healthy lives.  If you have any ideas to share with us, please get in touch.

VicHealth will continue to monitor the situation and let you know when a new date for This Girl Can Week is confirmed.
