The aim of this national conference is to:

  • increase the understanding and awareness of environmental health issues in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities;
  • provide a forum for discussion on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health issues;
  • provide a national voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health

The conference provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander environmental health practitioners a unique opportunity to meet in one place, to network and share information and learn of new initiatives. The conference theme Building Foundations for a Healthy Community will be addressed through a number of presentations delivered predominantly by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health practitioners.
