The Australian Government Paid Parental Scheme was announced in 2009 to increase mother’s employment while supporting maternal and child health and gender equality. Ten years since this historic decision, research from the NHRMC funded CRE in the Social Determinants of Health Equity underscores how this policy has enabled more equitable and health promoting parental leave as well as workforce participation. It is now time to reflect on the impact of this social policy and what remains to be done. This event aims to provoke debate and explore new ideas on the next steps for paid parental leave.
