The enHealth Council, a subcommittee of the National Public Health Partnership, brings together top environmental health officials at the Federal and State and Territory level, along with representation from local government, the Australian Institute of Environmental Health, the environment, public health sectors and the wider community. The primary source of advice and direction on Indigenous environmental health issues is drawn from the National Indigenous Environmental Health Forum, a subcommittee of the enHealth Council. The Council has responsibility for providing national leadership, implementing the National Environmental Health Strategy, forging partnerships with key players, and developing and coordinating advice on environmental health matters at a national level. The advice development process is strongly based on collaboration and consultation.
