*** UPDATE ***  IAHA continues to work to provide our Members and Stakeholders the opportunity to gather in 2020

Unfortunately, due to continuing uncertain nature of the times we have had to delay opening of our abstract submissions, scholarship applications, and registrations until further notice. 

However we are very excited to announce that the 2020 National Indigenous Allied Health Awards nominations are now open.

IAHA is proud to recognise the contribution of IAHA members to their profession and to improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples especially in this year of unprecedented difficulty.  It is important we continue this recognition so please consider nominating a deserving colleague, friend, or family member.

IAHA continues to operate and we will be constantly updating our website and social media to keep you informed but if you need any further information please feel free to contact us.


Join us for the 2020 IAHA National Conference and events that will take place from 27 November – 3 December 2020 at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort, Sunshine Coast, Australia.

IAHA brings you the best platform for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations allied health. Over the past eight years, IAHA has held five National Conferences, seven HealthFusion Team Challenges (HFTC), one International Indigenous Allied Health Forum, two National Forums and two Leadership Workshops, which have been attended by over 2,000 participants from across Australia and around the world.

The 2020 IAHA National Conference recognises the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the diversity of our membership as well as interdisciplinary action within the allied health sector. We also recognise how sustained holistic, strengths based approaches to health and wellbeing can achieve health equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

National Conference delegates will experience:

  • Professional development that will challenge them both personally and professionally
  • Networking opportunities with likeminded people within a culturally diverse and safe space
  • Opportunities for growth, learning and healing
  • A Gala celebration of Excellence in the Indigenous allied health sector
  • Enriching cultural experiences
