This conference monograph has been produced by the enHealth Working Group for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health (WGATSIEH), and is the seventh in a series of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health conference monographs.

National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health conferences are currently held on a biennial basis in order to provide a national forum for discussion and to raise the profile of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander environmental health issues. Previous conferences have been held in the following Australian locations:

Cairns: 1998
Broome: 1999
Alice Springs: 2000
Adelaide: 2002
Terrigal: 2004
Cairns: 2007
Kalgoorlie: 2009

These forums increase the understanding and awareness of environmental health issues, with a key focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health Practitioners and people. The monograph showcases the wide range of presentations delivered at the conference and reports on recommendations arising from conference delegates, with particular reference to recommendations from the Indigenous participants’ post-conference forum. These recommendations are used to inform national policy and strategic activities developed through the national environmental health committee (enHealth) and WGATSIEH.

The next National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health Conference is scheduled to be held in Darwin in 2011.
