On Friday 24 August, the Hon Robyn McSweeney MLC, Minister for Communities, launched the second edition of the West Australian Indigenous storybook.
The storybook, produced by the Public Health Advocacy Institute of Western Australia (PHAIWA), celebrates the achievement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people across the state in contributing to the health and social wellbeing of the WA Indigenous population.
This edition of the storybook focuses on the Perth and Peel regions of WA, and contains 13 stories. The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has a feature story on pages 26-28, which summarises how the HealthInfoNet is contributing to ‘closing the gap' in health between Indigenous and other Australians.
The storybook is sponsored by the WA State Government and Healthway, and a further two issues have been funded. These editions will be published over the coming 12 months. Keep an eye on the HealthInfoNet's WA State page for news on these upcoming publications.
An electronic copy of the storybook can be downloaded from the PHAIWA website.
