Human Rights Act 2019
Queensland’s new Human Rights Act 2019 came into effect on 1 January 2020.
The Act aims to:
- protect and promote human rights
- help build a culture in the Queensland public sector that respects and promotes human rights; and

Queensland Health is committed to a culture that places respect for human rights at the centre of everything we do.
