The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) today announced the launch of Australia's first national health Aboriginal newspaper, the NACCHO Health News.
Working with Aboriginal community controlled and award-winning national newspaper the Koori Mail, NACCHO aims to bring relevant information on health services, policy and programs to NACCHO members and key industry stakeholders at a grassroots level.
'We have learned that most of the communication around these important Aboriginal health areas tend to float around the top echelons of the government and non-government sectors,' said NACCHO chairman Justin Mohammed. 'Our intention is to broaden the reach of this information, landing in the waiting rooms and tea rooms of community health clinics, community centres, program offices and other places accessed daily by primary health care workers and our clients.'
NACCHO will leverage the brand, coverage and production skills of the Koori Mail to produce a 20-28 edition three times a year, distributed as a 'lift-out' in the 14,000 circulation Koori Mail, as well as an extra 5,000 copies to be sent directly to NACCHO member organisations across Australia.
The first edition of NACCHO Health News will be published on November 17.
