Portland District Health is signposting its support for the White Ribbon campaign by displaying a series of promotional posters advocating for an end to violence against women.

The posters call on people to take the White Ribbon oath as a symbol of intention to ensure all women are treated with respect and to intervene safely when someone else doesn't.

The signs have being erected at the PDH Consulting Suites, Active Health Portland and at the Urgent Care Centre entrance and the main entrance to the hospital.

PDH Director Primary and Aged Care Fiona Heenan said the oath encouraged men to speak up and act to stop violence against women.

PDH is committed to supporting this campaign and is encouraging everyone to promote respectful relationships and eliminate all violence against women.

Nearly 200,000 people have signed the oath.
