Aboriginal health initiatives at NALHN

ID Campaign

NALHN is working to address the disparity in health outcomes between Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous people.

The collection of every patient’s Indigenous status will allow us to provide Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander patients with the best culturally appropriate health care.

Research translation

NALHN is committed to working collaboratively to support partnerships that focus on research translation to ensure best practice models are implemented in NALHN Aboriginal health.

NALHN Aboriginal Consumer Reference Group

Through the NALHN Aboriginal Consumer Reference Group, local Aboriginal consumers have the opportunity to participate and contribute in the planning, evaluation and reviewing of Aboriginal health services, programs, health resources and information and be involved in decision making about health policy and planning, care and health service development for the Northern catchment area.
