ABOUT THE FPHI
The AIS Female Performance & Health Initiative (FPHI) was established in October 2019 to improve female athlete specific knowledge and systems of support. Given that female athletes make up at least 50% of our high performing population, the initiative benefits Australian athletes, coaches, parents, sporting organisations and support staff in the sport sector and raises awareness and understanding to key female athlete performance and health consideration.
