Indigenous Health Statement
ACIPC strongly supports efforts to improve indigenous health outcomes and close the gap for First Nations Peoples. Every individual has the right to access to equitable healthcare, regardless of their cultural background. By prioritising Indigenous health and implementing targeted strategies, we can achieve better health outcomes for all First Nations peoples.
We recognise the urgent need to close the gap in healthcare outcomes for First Nations peoples. It is imperative that we address the disparities that exist and ensure high-quality healthcare services are available to everyone. By actively supporting initiatives that promote indigenous health, engaging indigenous communities, and working collaboratively with healthcare providers, policymakers, and stakeholders, we can pave the way towards improving the health and well-being of indigenous Australians. The College is committed to further developing policies and opportunities for First Nations peoples.
