Austin Health commits to playing a role in reconciliation, to improve the life expectancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We acknowledge that we are on the land of the Wurundjeri people, and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and future. We pay our respects to other Elders, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We commit to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all Aboriginal people.
Our first Reconciliation Action Plan is finished. We're proud of what we achieved.
The COVID-19 pandemic has delayed some of the work from our first RAP. In particular, NAIDOC Week celebrations will not take place until November.
We've started planning our second Reconciliation Action Plan.
We welcome Community to get involved. Please get in touch by emailing our Diversity and Inclusion or Ngarra Jarra teams.
Our RAPs build on existing programs, such as our Ngarra Jarra Aboriginal Health Program and Closing the Gap Committee.
