Community Conversations

The current priorities of the Friends Advisory Committee are:

  • climate and health (including reducing greenhouse gas emissions to address air pollution, drought, bushfire, heat and extreme weather events, and water and food security); and
  • digital health (including connectivity, community awareness, digital health literacy and education and training of the health workforce).

The Committee is currently exploring ways to capture information about the local impacts of climate and how community networks can connect people facing similar issues with possible solutions.

They would also like to know how digital health strategies are enhancing access to health care services in your community and/or where these could be improved.

If you would like to contribute resources, a story, case study or example of how your community is addressing these issues email: [email protected]
