In 2023, for the first time, the Conference Leadership Group of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health Conference is inviting expressions of interest for Conference sponsorship. Please note that expressions of interest for sponsorship are by invitation only.
The Indigenous Eye Health Unit has provided support since the inaugural national Conference in 2017. The Conference is now moving to an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander controlled event, and sponsorship is necessary to provide for future events.
The Conference has transitioned to a First Nations – led event from the 2022 Conference. This year, the National Experts Group for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Eye Health (NEGASIEH), which contributes to the Conference Leadership Group, has asked the sector to explore ways to ensure this important annual Conference remains viable. This is the practical application of the 2023 Conference theme, ‘Our Vision in our Hands: Finding Our Voice’, onto the organisation approach of the Conference itself.
Sponsorship of NATSIEHC23 will help support First Nations self-determination in eye care, and will ensure that this important annual event continues in future years, in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander hands.
Sponsorships will also support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander delegates from across Australia to attend this important gathering.
