National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference

The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference (NATSIEHC) 2021: The Gap & Beyond, will be held virtually on 20–22 April 2021.

The 2021 conference, previously known as the ‘Close the Gap for Vision by 2020 National Conference’, will include speakers who were to present their work at the cancelled 2020 conference, and other postponed elements, together with new speakers and other additions.

Since 2017, the National Conferences have developed into a key annual gathering of the Indigenous eye health sector, providing an opportunity for a wide variety of voices to discuss and share success stories and challenges in eye health from across Australia.

The conference aims to advance the collective work of the Indigenous eye health sector towards the shared goal of improving eye health access and outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Delegates will include representatives from Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations and other primary care service providers, eye care clinicians, policy makers, researchers, non-government organisations, hospitals, professional peak bodies and government departments from across the country.

Although the conference will be held virtually, physical gatherings may take place at the Adelaide Convention Centre during the scheduled conference weekend. These will be announced closer to the time.
