The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) has launched Australia's first Aboriginal health newspaper, NACCHO Health News, at their annual general meeting (AGM) this week.
Working with Aboriginal community controlled and award-winning national newspaper the Koori Mail, NACCHO aims through NACCHO Health News 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. 'While NACCHO’s website and annual report have been valued sources of information for national and local Aboriginal health care issues for many years, the launch of NACCHO Health News creates a fresh, vitalised platform that will inevitably reach audiences beyond the boardrooms.'
'This is a tremendous leap for the dissemination of health information across our Aboriginal population,' Mr Mohammed noted. 'Never before has such valuable and relevant health information become so accessible to this sector. If you have a message or job opportunity you want to get into the Aboriginal primary health care sector, NACCHO Health News is your ideal media.'
The newspaper is delivered as a 'lift out' in the Koori Mail, as well as sent directly to NACCHO member organisations across Australia. To subscribe to Koori Mail please refer to the links below. To book an advertisement and/or have an article considered for publication in the April 2014 edition of the NACCHO Health News, please contact the NACCHO media team, via the contact details below.
