Queensland ice roundtable to seek solutions to growing problem in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

Date posted: 24 August 2015

The peak body representing Queensland's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health sector will host a summit to find ways of reducing methamphetamine (ice) use in the state on 11 September 2015 in Brisbane, Queensland.

The roundtable will follow a conference on 9 - 10 September of the Queensland Indigenous Substance Misuse Council which represents all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residential rehabilitation services.

The Queensland Aboriginal and Islander Health Council has invited key Federal and State Ministers and backbenchers, including the Queensland Parliamentary cross benchers, community leaders, the Queensland Police Service, Queensland Health, Queensland Corrective Services, key Aboriginal health researchers and rehabilitation services to attend the Roundtable.

The Roundtable has been organised following deepening concern across the country about growing use of methamphetamine and the dangers this poses to community safety and cohesion.
