If you have an intellectual disability in Australia, you are likely to die 25 years earlier than someone in the general population. You are also twice as likely to die from an avoidable cause. Australia has committed to ensuring “persons with disabilities have the right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health”. Yet there has been very limited progress towards this goal.

In this seminar, we will hear from international and local experts including people with intellectual disability on how public health evidence can affect social change and what we can do to make a difference.
