Unfinished Business: National Mesh Implant Forum

The National Mesh Implant Forum will be held in Melbourne on Friday April 5, 2019, to consider all aspects of Australia’s mesh implant crisis. 

The event will bring together mesh injured consumers, carers, regulatory authorities, health officials, the Chair of the Senate Inquiry into mesh and consumer advocates to create solutions and bring about real change.

The forum will consider not only the impact of pelvic mesh and rectocele implants, but the emerging parallel crisis involving people who have received mesh implants for hernia treatment.
