Our aim

By building and working with our partners in Aboriginal health, we aim to:

  • address the gap in health inequity for all local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • provide better access to primary care for all Aboriginal people through:
    • culturally appropriate primary care provided by Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs)
    • culturally sensitive and respectful primary care provided by general practice and other mainstream primary care providers
  • enhanced service capacity and evaluation capability within local ACCHOs
  • involve local communities in shaping service delivery.
