Health and wellbeing forum for Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Area

Collaboration

The Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA) hosted the Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Area Regional Healthy Communities Forum 2023 highlighting the region’s health and wellbeing priorities.

Community representatives, Elders, regional leaders, health industry experts and stakeholders attended the three-day forum focused on preventative health and the patient journey.

TSRA Acting Chairperson Horace Baira and Member for Badu in opening the forum stated:

“The passion, input and perspectives shared across the three days included recommendations and outcomes set to inform the TSRA’s future investment,” Mr Baira said.

“The forum has helped identify how the TSRA can strengthen partnerships across government and community-controlled health care sectors to better help our people.”

Forum participants workshopped key challenges and opportunities to collectively put forward a number of priorities for the TSRA to consider and action.

“A key element echoed throughout the forum was the need for service providers, policy-makers and government to work together, not separately,” Mr Baira said.

“Moving forward, the TSRA will continue advocating for a collaborative and community-led approach to improve health outcomes in our region.”

The TSRA extends its gratitude to all forum participants and contributors.
