Health Minister Kim Hames has announced that an additional $500,000 will be invested into the partnership between the Department of Health and the Aboriginal Health Council of Western Australia (AHCWA), over three years.
AHCWA was established in 2005, and is the peak body for 19 Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services in Western Australia.
Minister Kim Hames said the funding will enable AHCWA to continue its culturally appropriate work towards improving access to effective and appropriate health services for Indigenous Australians. He further commented that the investment will help to ensure more Indigenous people can have active involvement in their own health care, which is an important step in the process towards Closing the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous Australians and non-Indigenous Australians.
