Push to get more Indigenous people into health careers

Date posted: 26 July 2011

A $4.3 million campaign has been launched to attract more Indigenous people to careers in Indigenous health. The campaign featuring Health heroes - Indigenous people working in healthcare - will target television, radio and print, and include school visits to encourage students to pursue a job in the health sector.

Indigenous people currently make up less than one per cent of the health workforce. Indigenous Health Minister Warren Snowdon said 'We want Aboriginal and Torres Islander kids to know they can get a job in health. Not everyone can, or wants to, be a doctor. We need people working at every level and in all areas across the nation.'
