Dr Kyllie Cripps University of New South Wales. Yarning about Indigenous women are suffering more injury and death from domestic and family-related violence, and more children are remaining separated from their families, due to a lack of appropriate accommodation.

Associate Professor Dominic O’Sullivan – Last week, the Queensland government has extinguished native title over tracts of land in the Galilee Basin so the Adani coal mine could proceed. This gives Adani freehold title to the land, and means the native title holders’ objections no longer have the same legal significance. But they do have moral significance, and this decision has implications for Australia’s international reputation.
Angela Young from Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council. According to the Census, one third of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders are aged between 15–34 years. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people are our present and our future and we need their guidance to address health disparities and support existing positive outcomes.

Central to the development of the Strategy is the QAIHC Youth Health Summit 2019. The Summit will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 12 September 2019 and is intended to be an open conversation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people (ages 18-25) about their current state of wellbeing.
