Welcome from the Organising Committee

It is with pleasure that the Organising Committee invites you to attend the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) third Indigenous Women’s Health Meeting (IWHM) to be held at Adelaide Convention Centre in Adelaide, the traditional land of the Kaurna people, South Australia from 2-4 May 2014.

This meeting aims to bring together health professionals from across the country with the common interest and desire to improve the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. We are currently preparing a diverse meeting program covering current public health information, clinical topics and cultural issues with a focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women’s health as well as young women and women with families.

Delegates will gain information on current developments in different regions of the country and will be provided with the invaluable opportunity to network with health professionals of diverse backgrounds and experts in the field of Indigenous women’s health.

We also welcome any individual or organisation to present and share their existing work, research and health programs in the Indigenous communities.

We look forward to your participation to make this another highly successful meeting.
 

Dr Jacqueline Boyle 
Chair of the Organising Committee


Meeting Artwork

The theme of the meeting has influenced the design of the artwork, created by Adelaide artist Samantha Snow.

The brown solid lines represent the varied pathways people
travel to a meeting place. The circles in the middle represents
the meeting place where knowledge is shared. This exchange
leads to improving Indigenous women’s health. The light
brown strokes with light yellow dots symbolise the women.
