Future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Surveys - Have Your Say

The Australian Government has announced a new health study called the Intergenerational Health and Mental Health Study (IHMHS) to inform Australia’s Long Term Health Plan. The IHMHS will include three Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander surveys which will be run by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) between 2021 and 2023. Your views and ideas are important. We want to talk to you about what information should be collected and how it should be collected to ensure the surveys are culturally appropriate, and the information is useful for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

 

Please note:

Due to the rapidly evolving situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Australia and internationally, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has postponed all face-to-face health survey workshops and community sessions which were due to be held across Australia from March until June 2020.

 

The health and safety of our stakeholders is our highest priority, and this decision was taken with due consideration of the medical advice available and after listening to our stakeholders and members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

 

We acknowledge there has been a lot of interest in these workshops and community sessions, and we hope to be able to run them in the future. In the interim we are exploring options for virtual consultation, such as video conferences or Webinars.

 

You can have your say now through the ABS paper Future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Surveys - Have Your Say, 2020 (linked above), or by completing an online survey which can be accessed via the linked paper.
