Join COORDINARE's Aboriginal Health Council

25 June 2024

Do you have the skills and expertise to join COORDINARE's Aboriginal Health Council, to help drive improvements in health care accessibility and outcomes for our region?

In supporting the National Agreement on Closing the Gap, COORDINARE has established two Aboriginal Health Councils with representation across the northern and southern regions of COORDINARE’s geographic boundaries.

The Aboriginal Health Council:

  • provides advice to COORDINARE's Board on matters relating to Aboriginal health strategies including implications for program design, service approaches and professional development;
  • assists in identifying gaps, barriers, strengths, and opportunities for improvement in the delivery of primary health care to local Aboriginal communities;
  • provides advice and reviews relevant policy documents with respect to cultural safety;
  • advises COORDINARE on strategies to assist the uptake and adoption of best-practice models of care to provide Aboriginal communities with better access and engagement with primary health services.

What is the commitment?

The councils meet quarterly either online or in-person. Membership is by expression of interest, and tenure is three years with an option to extend. The current Aboriginal Health Council Terms of Reference are available here.
