2018 International Indigenous Allied Health Forum

Indigenous Allied Health Australia (IAHA) will be hosting the 2018 International Indigenous Allied Health Forum at the Mercure Hotel, Sydney, Australia on the 30 November 2018.

You are invited to attend the 2018 International Indigenous Allied Health Forum and Student HealthFusion Team Challenge (HFTC) that will take place from 30 November – 3 December 2018 at the Mercure Hotel, Sydney, Australia, immediately following Healing Our Spirit Worldwide – Eighth Gathering.

IAHA brings you the best platform for all things Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health related in Australia. Over the past six years IAHA has held four National Conferences, five HFTC, two National Forums and two Leadership Workshops, which have been attended by over 1500 participants from across Australia.

This year’s International Forum recognises the diversity of Indigenous and First Nations peoples, the diversity of our membership as well as interdisciplinary action within the allied health sector and more broadly. We also recognise how sustained holistic, strengths-based approaches to health and well-being can achieve Indigenous and First Nations peoples’ health equality.

Forum delegates will experience:
• Indigenous and First Nation presenters and panelists from across the world discussing shared experiences  and practices in building an Indigenous health workforce
• Networking opportunities with like-minded people within a culturally safe space
• Opportunities for growth
• A Gala celebration of Excellence in the Indigenous allied health sector
• Enriching cultural experiences



Don’t miss this unique, exciting, solutions-focused event led by Indigenous peoples.

“The most enjoyable part of the conference for me was the widespread knowledge and innovation of Joe Gallagher. His point of view on everything he spoke about was all about his people”
“Professor Keawe Kaholokula’s presentation was inspiring. Two key messages that stuck with me from Professor Keawe’s presentation were “we as Indigenous peoples living in our homelands need to be the mainstream’, and ‘racism can kill us, but culture can save us’.”
“I love listening to our International speakers, it’s good to hear their stories and issues they encounter on their journey to fight and advocate for their people.”
