What is happening?
Public servants/the government want to know what you think about a policy they have created about LGBTQI+ health.
What is a policy? A policy is a set of ideas or plans that is used as a basis for making decisions.
Your view is important because if you are LGBTQI+ then the policy may be used to make decisions about your health, or LGBTQI+ people’s health as a group. Like: how to improve our health, how to talk about LGBTQI+ people in a health document so we are understood, how to train staff in health to better engage with LGBTQI+ people.
You can give feedback in person or via email.

NT Health, guided by a LGBTQI+ Advisory Group have been developing a new strategic policy to support and strengthen LGBTQI+ employees in the workplace and LGBTQI+ health service delivery.
