We pay an annual fee from our subscription money to the Australian Federation of Medical Women. Currently this is $50 AUD. They in turn pay $10 USD per member to the Medical Women’s International Association. So, by joining us, you become a member of all three groups.
MWIA run a number of international conferences, liaising with the United Nations and the World Health Organisation. Opportunities to attend meetings overseas come up regularly, some with financial support for younger members and students. We have a Young MWIA and Young AFMW subgroup for women graduates under 40 years.
Student subscriptions are kept as low as possible because we do not send a fee to AFMW or MWIA for them.
All of our committee members and students provide their services for nothing. Most of the events and newsletter production are organised by our wonderful volunteers. Often there is a small charge to attend events to cover hire of venues etc. Most are free to members.
