Jean Hailes is supported by funding from the Australian Government.
The Jean Hailes Foundation has developed a significant reputation as an independent and objective source of information on the latest scientific developments in women's health. This independence and objectivity is recognised by government and the general public alike, and hence is rigorously guarded. In particular, we protect our academic freedom and right to speak objectively and openly on all matters, controversial or otherwise.
Grants and donations for research and education are only accepted on the basis of full academic freedom including our right to publish all results deriving from the studies. Study results are published in international peer reviewed scientific journals that ensure objective scrutiny and assessment of all information before results are released publicly. Donors have no say or influence over what information is published or released. In addition the editors of medical journals have set policies to ensure that the financial associations of authors are disclosed and that published articles are not influenced by their financial associations. We support fully and comply with these policies.
This website does not host any form of advertisement.
