2021 Policy Priorities - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

LGBTIQ+ Health & Wellbeing Policy Priorities 2021

LGBTIQ+ people are a priority population in multiple national health and wellbeing strategies, and there is an urgent need for greater national coordination and investment. LGBTIQ+ Health Australia worked closely with our member organisations to provide a submission to the Federal Budget, and to develop recommended Priority Policies for 2021.

In January 2021 LGBTIQ+ Health Australia provided our submission to the Federal Budget consultations. The January 2021 submission is available here. Issues highlighted within this submission have been further developed throughout our Policy Priorities 2021 .

Those priority issues were confirmed feedback and endorsed at the 11th Health In Difference and 5th National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care conferences by 370+  delegates. The issues discussed and endorsed are available within two conference communiques available below.

Dropping the “+” from our name only occurs within digital formats that do not allow mathematical symbols, such as within our domain name, handles and hashtags.
LGBTIQ+ Health Australia acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia, their diversity, histories and knowledge and their continuing connections to land and community. We pay our respects to all Australian Indigenous Peoples and their cultures, and to Elders of past and present.
