The National Action Plan for Endometriosis has received further support from the government in the form of a $1.2 billion dollar grant, on top of existing funding, topping investment in the plan up to $4.7 million.

Endometriosis is an often debilitating condition which affects one in ten women, causing severe period pain and other health problems.

The new funding, and government commitment to the plan, is welcomed by patient activists and medical professionals, with some caveats- they say more funding is needed to properly serve endometriosis sufferers.
