QAIHC is advocating for its members this election. The federal election is to be held in May 2019, and we are calling on politicians to: 

The results of this election will impact on each and every one of us. As such, QAIHC have developed a range of resources to provide our members with information on the upcoming federal election. 

Throughout this election period, QAIHC will increase its efforts to advocate for greater resources for the sector. We will seek commitments to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health improvement from political candidates prior to election day, and we encourage you to join us in taking steps to highlight the essential and valuable role that the AICCHO sector plays in improving the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland.
