ALMA is committed to creating a better medical profession for our current and future members.
Locally ALMA seeks to bring about this change in a number of ways;
Improving Australian health policy and practice in relation to lesbian and same sex attracted women’s health needs.
Improving accessibility and funding for vital research into lesbian and queer female issues.
Inclusion of LGBTQI+ health education in medical students curriculum.
Eliminating and fighting discrimination and homophobia in all its forms.
Working to raise awareness and act on wider social issues including; climate change and refugee healthcare.
ALMA has and continues to lobby for governmental action on important issues, supporting our members through times of personal difficulty and working alongside other advocacy groups to improve life outcomes for all same sex attracted women and the wider community.
