The 11th National and Torres Strait Islander Health (NATSIEH) conference is the key conference for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander environmental health professionals. This year the conference was held at the Pullman Hotel, in Cairns, Queensland (Qld).

Support for the conference was provided by the Qld Government, New South Wales Health, Northern Territory Government, West Australian Department of Health, the Tasmanian Government, EHPA and Environmental Health Australia.

As with previous NATSIEH conferences, the event was a great opportunity for delegates to hear the latest information from the sector, and to network and share ideas with one another. Key conference highlights include:

Millie Harford-Mills, the representative from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, gave a short presentation on the second day of the conference. Millie highlighted the Indigenous environmental health practitioner portal, and spoke to delegates about the changes that will happen to the portal when the HealthInfoNet moves to responsive design. Millie also hosted a HealthInfoNet exhibition stall as part of the conference exhibition. Other exhibitors include Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities (AMRRIC), Indigenous Eye Health Unit at the University of Melbourne, Queensland Health, and New South Wales Health. Delegates were pleased to hear about the inclusion of a section on environmental health in the latest Overview of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status, with many taking hard copies that were available on the exhibit.
