Ishar Multicultural Women’s Health Services provides a range of holistic services to women from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds. Ishar is a LGBTQI friendly service and welcomes women of any sexual orientation, anyone who identifies as a woman and anyone who was assigned female identity at birth.
Since 1992 Ishar has provided vital health and wellbeing services to refugee and migrant women in an endeavour to promote healthy communities. We operate using the ‘social model’ of health in which the presenting ‘medical’ condition is not separated from the interconnections of personal, social, economic, cultural, age and gender related issues. We serve women across all age ranges from young girls to seniors.
As the only women’s health centre specifically addressing the needs of multicultural women Ishar is very experienced in both working collaboratively with other agencies and meeting the requirements of funding bodies.
