Women’s Child and Youth Health Plan 2021 – 2031

In February 2021, SA Health sought feedback on The South Australian Women’s Child and Youth Health Plan 2021 – 2031.

We made a submission that called for the plan to recognise:

  • the urgent need to prioritise resources and services to improve the sexual health and wellbeing of Australia’s trans and gender diverse populations
  • the needs and experiences of same-sex parented families, and LGBTIQ+ families broadly
  • the huge disparities that are experienced by LGBTIQ+ young people when it comes to mental health and suicide
  • the importance of providing safe and inclusive health services for LGBTIQ+ people
  • the health needs of intersex people
  • disabled women’s unique needs and experiences.

We also encouraged SA Health to hold further targeted consultations with LGBTIQ+ and disability communities on the Plan.
