LGBTIQA+ Health Community Consultation

Think Change Resolve (TCR) is working with Health Equity Matters (formerly AFAO) to conduct a national consultation to understand the primary health care needs, experiences and priorities of LGBTIQA+ communities.


Our project aims to make recommendations to improve primary health care to better meet the needs of LGBTIQA+ people across the country.

How to get involved

Our consultation will be running over May to June 2023 and we want to hear from the whole diversity of our communities, including all of the LGBTIQA+ and those in urban, regional, remote locations; old and young; First Nations; people from diverse ethnic backgrounds and people with disability. There are a number of ways you can get involved. 

Complete the online survey

An online survey will be open from 1 May - 30 June 2023. All LGBTIQA+ community members who access primary health care are encouraged to complete the survey so we can hear about the diversity of experiences of health care. The survey is also open to parents and carers of queer and/or gender diverse children and young people.
