New web resource for Indigenous environmental health practitioners launched today

Date posted: 12 May 2009

A new section of the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet with information for Indigenous environmental health practitioners was launched today at the 7th National Indigenous Environmental Health Conference in Kalgoorlie.

The Indigenous Environmental Health Practitioners web resource is available at:

This section of the website has been developed in collaboration with the Working Group for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health (WGATSIEH), and aims to provide a 'one-stop info-shop' dedicated to the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health Practitioners, including up-to-date information and networking opportunities online.

The content of the web resource is being guided by a national Focus Group, consisting of an informal network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander environmental health practitioners.

The web resource has been launched at an earlier stage than normal, in order to obtain feedback about the web resource from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Environmental Health workforce. From this feedback, the web resource will be developed further. Currently, only the sections about water management have been developed, as a model for the information in the rest of the web resource.

The online network is fully available however, as the Indigenous environmental health practitioners yarning place. The yarning place is free to join, and provides electronic services that assist members to network, yarn and share information and experiences online. To join, access the yarning places web page (URL behind yarning places web page: and select Indigenous environmental health practitioners.
