National Plan or the Health of Children and Young People Consultation

YACSA maintains that access to affordable and appropriate health care, particularly for young people, assists in promoting health and wellbeing and preventing chronic and serious conditions later in life. However, as part of our feedback, YACSA has expressed a series of concerns about the draft plan ranging from the omission of the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition from the list of participants that developed the plan, vulnerable groups such as LGBTIQ+ young people being conspicuously absent from the list of priority groups and that the fast turnaround and limited nature of the consultation survey may not gather the required feedback and support from the organisations and individuals impacted by the plan.
