ATSI Eye Health Meeting

Challenges and success stories in First Nations eye health will be the focus of a national conference, to be held in Sydney next year.

The 2023 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference will be held in Parramatta, on Dharug Country, from 24–26 May.

The 2023 Conference is once again led by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Conference Leadership Group (CLG) with co-hosts, the Indigenous Eye Health Unit (IEHU) at The University of Melbourne and the Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW.

Since 2017, the national conferences have developed into a key annual gathering of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health sector.

The conference aims to advance the collective work of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye health sector towards the shared goal of improving eye health access and outcomes of First Nations 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.

The 2022 ATSI Eye Health meeting was held in Darwin in May.
