Would you like to be directly involved in helping the Victorian Government improve the health and wellbeing of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) communities?
Do you live in Victoria and have the capacity to analyse issues and consult effectively to represent GLBTI community views?
Minister for Health David Davis and the Minister for Mental Health Mary Wooldridge, are pleased to invite applications for membership of the Ministerial Advisory Committee on GLBTI Health and Wellbeing.
The committee provides an exciting opportunity to contribute and provide ongoing advice to the ministers, and to the Victorian Department of Health, on health, ageing, mental health and drugs services issues affecting GLBTI Victorians.
The committee’s chairperson and members will be appointed on a voluntary basis for a term until 30 October 2014.
In addition to GLBTI community representatives, the ministers are seeking to appoint health practitioners and researchers with specific expertise in GLBTI public health, mental health and preventative health.
Applications are encouraged from GLBTI Aboriginal people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with a disability, older people, people living in rural and regional Victoria, women and young people.
Applications close at 5:00 pm on Friday 13 April 2012.
