The annual PSANZ Congress provides the opportunity for experts from across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand to come together to share, learn and network. In 2024, there is the opportunity for Indigenous experts to come together prior to the opening ceremonies to share knowledge, skills and expertise in a culturally supportive and safe environment. This will include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples, Pasifika peoples and tangata whenua (indigenous whanau Maori from Aotearoa New Zealand) and provides a unique opportunity to meet and wananga (learning places) with the support of PSANZ. It will be the first time that an opportunity such as this has occurred and is in keeping with the 2024 Congress theme of 'whiria te tangata' weaving people together.

The Burnet Institute will be sponsoring a number of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers, clinicians or consumers who work in perinatal health in Australia to attend the 2024 PSANZ Congress from Monday April 8 - Wednesday April 10 and the Indigenous Hui being held Sunday April 7.
