Policy

As the national body representing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors and medical students, we are uniquely positioned to provide perspectives aimed at improving the health and life outcomes of our people. We work to shape the healthcare system into an equitable and culturally safe place for Indigenous doctors and patients.

We produce a variety of policy papers and statements addressing issues that affect our members, such as racism in the health sector and student retention. We also make submissions to government and non-government bodies regarding Indigenous health.

As a national policy leader, we are represented on over 30 committees nationally. The expertise of our Board and member representatives across these roles is shaping Indigenous health policy across the sector.

We are proud to promote the important role that culture, land and spirituality have in the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
