Committed to improving outcomes

We are committed to supporting improved and sustainable access to primary eye care and improved eye health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. To guide and support work in this area we convene the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Working Group.

The priorities of the group are to:

  • provide a forum for members to collaborate in developing sustainable models of eye care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  • provide an expert group to inform the profession in relation to the eye care needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
  • provide a vehicle for advocacy for adequate funding and programs to facilitate sustainable eye care services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  • increase awareness of the need for good eye care in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
